Jhumpa Lahiri is one of the great writers of our generation. After your students read "A Temporary Matter," have them work on this jam-packed lesson! The resources that are included in this pack can span two or more class periods. When you purchase this resource, you will receive:
+A PowerPoint presentation that moves students through each part of the lesson
+A Quiz (with answer key)
+A PARCC-style warm up to help prepare them for the test (with answer key)
+Basic during-reading questions or questions to answer after reading that span comprehension-level up to analysis-level
+A student-led discussion period with a reflection sheet
+A partner activity that has students working on arguable essay prompts. Each partner takes on the role of Defense attorney or Prosecuting attorney for the prompt and must provide evidence and a thesis statement to defend their position.
As a side note, I was formally observed doing this lesson and it was the highest-rated lesson I've ever done!
*This lesson will eventually be included in my GIANT short story unit resource. It will be for sale soon!
