  4. 4. 9. Explain the line “Youth must triumph... now. Love must triumph... now. Afterwards... it will be life.” F. Discussion Now, let us answer question number one. What is the short story all about? The short story is about a Dodong who entered marriage life with Teang at the age of eighteen, and who later felt remorseful about his marriage life. Who are the characters in the story? The characters in the short story are Dodong, Teang, Lucio, Blas, Tona, and Dodong’s mother and father. Describe the setting of the story. The setting is in a barrio or in a rural place where most people work in fields. There were rice fields all around the place and carabaos, too. There were streams too where people bathe after the fieldwork soiled them. There was no electrical lamps, rather people used petroleum lamp to light their houses. What point of view was used in the story? The omniscient point of view is used in the story since the narrator was able infiltrate the thoughts of the characters. What made Dodong feel that he was no longer a boy but already a man? What character is revealed by Dodong when he was got tickled by the worm, jerked his foot, flinging the worm into air yet never bothered to look at where it fell? How did Teang find married life? Correct! She was unhappy with their marriage that she even wondered how life would be if she had married Lucio, her suitor, instead of Dodong. When Dodong asked permission to get married, his father felt sorry for him. So did Dodong felt that he was no longer a boy because he had pimples on his face and his lip already was darkened. He thought that those were the evidence of his being a man. His reaction towards it revealed that from the very beginning Dodong's character is someone who is self-obsessed to the point that he doesn't bother to look at the consequences of his actions. Teang found her married life difficult to the extent that she was unhappy with their marriage. For six successive years, Dodong and Teang kept having children. Besides that, she spent the rest of her life with the interminable household work – cooking, laundering, cleaning the house and taking care of the children. She became shapeless even at the young age.
  5. 5. Dodong when Blas asked for permission to get married. They knew that life is hard after marriage, why then do you think that they did not prevent their sons from experiencing those hardships that they’ve gone through? It is because both fathers married early, they lacked the experience and the know-how with regards to raising children: hence the fact that they were unable to fulfill their responsibility as parents in guiding their kids down a wiser path. Correct! This is particularly due to the fact that his father never had that wisdom either. Such wisdom can only be passed on by those people who greatly influence our lives - which in most cases are our parents. So when dealing with his son Blas, Dodong could only do what he knew like what his father did with him, and that is to allow Blas to marry early, when he should have discouraged him instead. The lesson then becomes universal in the sense that it is not only for the young ones but to parents as well that they should have the wisdom on how to guide their children the proper way. Explain the line “Youth must triumph... now. Love must triumph... now. Afterwards... it will be life.” This phrase depicts the cycle of life which means one must experience being young first before turning into an adult, and then when he is ready enough that is the time that he may enter into a marriage life. One must enjoy his younger years, enjoy being in love, then he will be ready for the so called life – to live and to build his own home. Very good! This phrase refers to the cycle of life that one must follow and go through. G. Generalization What is the significance of this story to you? H. Application Now, let us have an activity. Let’s group the class into four small groups. This will be group 1, this is group 2, group 3, and group 4. Choose a leader. You are now going to analyze the short story Footnote to Youth using a story grammar. And what is a story grammar? A story grammar is a graphic organizer which The story serves a warning to us, youth, as the title itself suggests. It reminds us of the responsibilities and realities that come with marriage and the family life. It advises us that life after marriage is difficult especially when we are yet incapable of the responsibilities and challenges that life gives. Therefore, we should not rush into something that we will be regretting in the end.
