For your review of this unit, recall what you have learned about satirical devices. How do satirists use humor to critique their societies? Write in your journal for five minutes. Name all of the devices you can remember. Now, you will have a look at some popular examples of modern satire. All of these parody (imitate) the news.

What was the topic of the satire? What satirical devices does it use? ...
