Watch a Movie Scene
Get a copy of Bridget Jones's Diary and watch the scene where Salman Rushdie appears as himself at a book launching. Then have a discussion about the author.
Select Devils and Angels
From among the class, assign either devil or angel to individual class members. Discuss how each of them feels in their assigned roles.
Cast the Movie
Pretending you are a movie producer, select popular actors and cast the main characters from THE SATANIC VERSES. Compare your casting and discuss why you selected the actors you chose.
Make up new Words
Rushdie uses many words together into one word such as "angelicdevilish fall." The effect is a more powerful expression where the words have a combined meaning greater than their individual meanings. See how many words you can make using this technique and share them in class. [Example: a hotcold reception]
