Detailed lesson plan - Crossing the Bar - giocosovivace Document Transcript

  • 1. Republic of the Philippines LAGUNA STATE POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY San Pablo City Campus World Literature: 4th Year High School English I. Learning Objectives At the end of the lesson, the students should be able to: 1. define allegory as a literary device, 2. create their own allegory, distinguished the literal and symbolic meaning of it and 3. develo their social skills during the group activities. II. Subject Matter Main Topic: Crossing the Bar by Alfred Lord Tennyson Specific Topic: Allegory References: Communicate Effectively Through LITERATURE 4, Lorenzo, et. al., 61- 64, Introduction to Alfred Tennyson’s, Crossing the Bar, http:/www.kkhsou.in/main/evidya2/english/alfred_tennyson.html,2011 and “Their conversation is awkward, especially when she mentions Wickham, a subject Darcy clearly wishes to avoid” (SparkNotes Editors, 2002). Materials: Prepared Hand- out (Poem) table and visual aids. III. Procedure TEACHER’S ACTIVITY STUDENT’S ACTIVITY A. Preparatory Activity • Prayer Let us all stand for and place ourselves in the presence of our Lord. Student A please lead the prayer. • Greetings Good afternoon class! We are (Names of the Instructors). • Checking of Attendance Is there any absentee for the day? Very good! Perfect attendance! B. Review of the Past Lesson Yesterday we discussed about metaphor. Let us just recap, what is a metaphor? Any questions or clarifications class? If you don’t have any questions, we’ll move to a new interesting topic. C. Motivation Draw Me/ Meaning: We’re going to divide the class into (Student A, would lead the prayer together with the class.) Good afternoon teacher(s)! We don’t have any absentees for the day teacher(s)! A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes a subject by asserting that it is, on some point of comparison, the same as another otherwise unrelated object. No more questions teacher(s). (Students would be doing the activity in groups Page 1 of 5
  • 2. five groups. Each group will be given a word, which each group would be drawing in a sheet we’re going to provide you with. Groups are allowed to draw what they know about the word or the meaning they associate the word with. You are given 3 minutes to draw. Afterwards, one representative from each group would be explaining their drawing in front of the class. Well done class, you’ve produced drawings. The reason behind this activity is for us to see two sides of things. Their literal meaning and their deeper/ symbolic meaning which will be connected for our topic for today. D. Presentation Have you encountered the word allegory? If you have, what do you mean by it? That’s right, thus an allegory is a story/ poem with two meanings, a literal meaning and a symbolic meaning. Today, we’re going to have an allegorical poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson entitled, “Crossing the Bar”. Let the class read the poem a loud, each stanza per group: Crossing the Bar Alfred Lord Tennyson Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For though from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar. While reading the poem class, what have and present their master pieces in front of the class and post their drawings on the board.) I have encountered it teacher. An allegory is a form of extended metaphor, in which objects, persons, and actions in a narrative, are equated with the meanings that lie outside the narrative itself. The underlying meaning has moral, social, religious, or political significance, and characters are often personifications of abstract ideas. (Students are going to read the poem.) A ship/ boat sailing through the sea which is about to cross the sandbar having a passenger Page 2 of 5
  • 3. you imagined? Since this poem is an allegorical poem, do you think what you’ve seen is the literal or symbolic meaning of the poem, Crossing the Bar? Let’s uncover the literal and the symbolic meaning of the poem class! Let’s do it per stanza. On the board is a table with three columns, 1st column: stanza number, 2nd column: literal meaning and 3rd column: symbolic meaning. Stanza # Literal Meaning Symbolic Meaning In stanza number one, what do you see as its literal meaning? How about its symbolic meaning? What do you think is the meaning of the word sunset, evening star, and bar? Well, done for the 1st stanza! Can anyone share with us what they see as the literal meaning of stanza two? What then do you see as its symbolic meaning? What does the speaker really wanted considering that the voyage is about crossing the borders between life and death? That’s good! We’re halfway through! What do you see as the literal meaning of the 3rd stanza? How about the symbolic meaning of it, being that the evening bells signals the coming of death? We’re almost there! For the last stanza what do you think is its literal meaning? What can you see as the symbolic meaning of the last stanza? What can you say about the emphasized words, “Time and Place” and “Pilot”? How does this contribute to the symbolic meaning of the stanza? Wow, we’ve decoded the symbolic meaning of the poem, Crossing the Bar by Alfred Lord longing to be safe. That’s the literal meaning of the poem teacher. A ship sails through the sunset, the evening star then rises in the heavens and the passenger is hoping that they get through the bar safely. The coming of death and the speaker in the poem is being reminded of it because of old age. But with that the speaker as he dies doesn’t want to disturb anyone or make a big thing about it. The speaker hopes that the sea would be deep, for a tide for the ship and for the weather to be perfectly calm and quiet to pass through the bar easily. The speaker wants to die calmly without experiencing the usual pain. The evening bells signal the coming of darkness/ night, that as he leaves the harbour that no one would be sad. That the speaker is reminded of his death and it’s fast approaching and only wishes that as he passes away, that no one’s going to be sad nor going to cry. That the journey is significant to the speaker because it’ll take hi beyond “Time and Place” and takes confidence in the hopes of seeing his “Pilot” face to face. That the afterlife may be endless and the speaker only hopes to see God face to face when he dies. Page 3 of 5
  • 4. Tennyson. Well done class! E. Application Create an Allegory The class would once again be grouped in five and will think of a life situation you’d like to allegorize. Then think of an object or action that could be the parallel of your chosen life situation. Afterwards, a group member would be the one to explain the relationship of your allegory. F. Generalization Again, class what’s an allegory? Very good! G. Evaluation Now, for your most favourite part of every lesson, we’ll have a Quiz. In a 1/2 sheet of paper answer the following questions. 1. What is an allegory? 2. What is the mood present in the poem? 3. How does the speaker see the coming of death? Prove your answer. The students would go to their groups and allegorize their statements. An allegory is a form of extended metaphor, in which objects, persons, and actions in a narrative, are equated with the meanings that lie outside the narrative itself. The underlying meaning has moral, social, religious, or political significance, and characters are often personifications of abstract ideas. An allegory is a story/ poem with two meanings, a literal meaning and a symbolic meaning. IV. Assignment Page 4 of 5 Teacher’s Activity Student’s Activity Are there any questions? Added information? If there aren’t any, well I have mine. What is imagery? And how is it used as a literary device? Write your answer in your notebook in English. This will serve as your homework which will be checked next meeting. That would be all! You are dismissed, cleaners please remain. Goodbye class! No more questions teacher. What’s your question teacher? Goodbye and thank you teacher(s)!
