The reason that the appeal of the cinema is more is because the impact of the visual along with audio has a long lasting effect. What we see with our eyes moves us more quickly than what we assimilate with our mind. Keeping this in mind I have tried in my presentation to use the combined impact of visual along with audio. This will certainly lead to a better comprehension and long lasting impact of the poem.
Pictures shown in the presentation will make the class room teaching lively and students will definitely try to match these with their mental images thus making the concept of imagery clearer to them.
Further simple questions based on the text will strengthen their understanding
This assignment will further aim at nurturing reading and writing.
A quiz has been added to assess conceptual understanding and develop lateral and critical thinking.
Lord Ullin’s Daughter
A Chieftain, to the highlands bound,
Cries, ‘Boatman, do not tarry!
And I’ll give thee a silver pound
To row us o’er the ferry!’-
‘ Now , who be ye, would cross Lochgyle,
This dark and stormy weather?’
‘ O, I am the chief of Ulva's isle,
And this, Lord Ullin’s daughter.-
“ And fast before her father’s men Three days we’ve fled together , For should he find us in the glen, My blood would stain the heather. His horsemen hard behind us ride; Should they our steps discover, Then who will cheer my bonny bride When they have slain her lover?”
Out spoke the hardy Highland wight,
“ I’ll go, my chief I'm ready:
It is not for your silver bright,
But for your winsome lady:
And by my word! the bonny bird
In danger shall not tarry;
So, though the waves are raging white
I’ll row you o’er the ferry.”
By this the storm grew loud apace,
The water wraith was shrieking;
And in the scowl of heaven each face
Grew dark as they were speaking.
But still as wilder blew the wind,
And as the night grew dearer,
Adown the glen rode armed men,
Their trampling sounded nearer.
“ O haste thee, haste!” the lady cries,
“ though tempests round us gather;
I’ll meet the raging of the skies,
But not an angry father.”
The boat has left a stormy land,
A stormy sea before her,
When, O! too strong for human hand,
The tempest gather’d over her.
And still they row’d amidst the roar
Of waters fast prevailing ;
Lord Ullin reach’d that fatal shore ,-
His wrath was changed to wailing .
For, sore dismay's through storm and shade ,
His child he did discover :--
One lovely hand she stretch’d for aid
And one was round her lover.
“ Come back! Come back!” he cried in grief
“ Across this stormy water:
And I’ll forgive your highland chief,
My daughter!- O my daughter!”
‘ Twas vain: the loud waves lash’d the shore,
Return or aid preventing:
The water wild went o’er his child,
And he was left lamenting.
Thomas Campbell was born in County Down, Ireland, February 1,1763. He died in Bethany, Virginia (now in West Virginia), January 4,1854. He came to America from Scotland in 1807. In 1808 he and others founded the Christian Association of Washington, Pennsylvania. That group adopted the motto, well known by Disciples,” Where the scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are silent we are silent.
Campbell and others were called” Reformers,” for their desire to restore the Church’s first century roots. This way of life came to be known as the “Restoration Movement”. Near Washington, Pennsylvania, Campbell and his son, Alexander, and the Christian association established the Brush Run Church, which, in 1815, became part of a nearby Baptist association. Reformers and the Baptists differed on key issues. By 1830, the Reformers cut their last ties with the Baptist association and became known as “Disciples”.
Thomas Campbell’s passion for Christian unity is summed up in his proclamation that: “ the church of Christ upon earth is essentially, internationally, and constitutionally one.”
