a wood slat sounds like a great idea. although it's not going to block out as much light as some type of indoor shades would do.

What about darkening up the curtains? That helps my living room tremendously.

You can always put up some type of tall furniture in front of the area.

Take a wood slat,
this will be to stop the front room from heating up.

I will suggest to enhance the roof towards the part from where sun light comes and can use pillar to provide strength. This will not darken your room as well.
