1. A Temporary Matter on the Big Stage
Students pay close attention to imagery and how tension builds in the final lines of this short story by becoming set designers for a stage version of 'A Temporary Matter'. As an extension, students can also perform their version of the ending by using their set design instructions.
2. What They Do and What They Think....
'A Temporary Matter' explores the breakdown of a marriage. But when the electricity goes out in this short story, huge revelations about the communication between Shukumar and Shoba in what is thought rather than what is said comes to the forefront. A powerful grid for an exploration on characterisation.
