PREFACE

Capiz is a province endowed with a myriad of beautiful gifts. From its natural
resources to its very reputable and super-sumptuous seafood, Capiz also boosts its rich
cultural heritage. It is sad to think however, that these majestic affluences were unknown
to many, most especially to our younger generations. Take for instance the different
historical structures found within Roxas City, many of our students do not know that the
birthplace of the Last President of the Philippine Commonwealth and the First President
of the Philippine Republic is just a tricycle ride away and can be found in Rizal Street.
Jovita Fuentes and Daisy Hontiveros Avellana were National Artists for Theater and
were proudly Capizeas.

Making this information available in our schools will foster patriotism and self-
pride strengthening students nationalistic identity. That is why the Department of
Education is doing its best to contextualize the lessons most especially in English for
notoriety in thought that before we study other countrys literature and culture, we study
our own to realize that there is beauty around us.

With this learning material, it is expected that students become aware of their
local heritage, hence, they become proud of who they are as Capizeos the
uniqueness, ingenuity and creativity.

This material accomplishes the competencies of Grade 9 - English specifically:


EN8LT-Ie-2.2.2- Explain Literary devices used and ENRC-Ia-16- Share prior knowledge
about a text topic.
This is a contextualized lesson plan aimed to guide teachers in using local
product of the community as a springboard of the lesson through the use of teacher-
composed poem.

AN ANGEL IN THE MUDFLATS
By: Kristene D. Guto

Out in deep water a bright halo appears to me.


White as the clouds in fine weathered glee.
A seashell with grandeur like no other;
She is an angel in deep sandy water.
I dive to see, i dive to dig; i dive to keep, i dive to live

This angel is a creature inimitable and to traverse this land


Gists the wonders of closed wings glow in mudflats sand.
The break of dawn comes digging a scally hand.
Beholds our eyes like an angels wings in an opened shell,
The world has witnessed a waters wonder uniquely angel

Angel wings to some, diwal to many.


Years hid her from mankinds fury.
A decade ensconced her succulent sweetness,
As the splashing waves cover the shores,
Slushy sands conceal her even more

This angel is a teacher.


Taught a lesson as hard as diamond:
Treasure and save or forever appears no more,
Preserve and conserve or it vanishes from our shore.
Protect and guard or darkness swaths Capiz ocean floor

Think and share


Discuss the following Poetic Devices:

Rhyme:
Remember that rhyme is part of what we mean when we say poetry
is musical. When the ending sounds of words are repeated, we call it
rhyme. Rhyming words do not appear only at the end of the lines (end
rhyme) in poems, but they may appear within the line (internal rhyme).

Ex.: In the water I saw the sky


Until the sun caused it to dry end rhyme

I laughed when saw a draft and coughed when saw a shaft


Internal rhyme

2
Onomatopoeia:
The poet used words that suggest sounds and at the same time
describe actions being made.
Onomatopoeia is a sound device used by poets to suggest actions,
movements, and meanings

Ex: The buzzing of the bees


The hissing of the snake
Alliteration:
The repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of the words like:

Ex: doubting, drearing dreams no mortal enter dared to dream before


- Edgar Allan Poe, from The Raven

Assonance:
The repetition of vowel sounds within words;

Ex: along the window sill, the lipstick stabs glittered in their steels
shells
- Rita dove, from Adolescence III

Consonance:
The repetition of consonant sounds within and at the end of the words.

Ex: Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door


- Edgar Allan Poe, from The Raven

Repetition:
A word or group of words repeated in the poem to add drama and
emphasis.

Ex. Sans eyes, sans teeth, sans everything


- William Shakespeare from The Seven Ages of
Man

Imagery:
Through the words used by the poet, as expressed by the
persona/speaker, are the words that appeal to the senses - vivid images,
clear sounds and exact feelings conveyed.

Generalization:
Reading a poem paves the way to making meaning in life. It allows you to
share certain experiences. Oftentimes, you find and share something more in
common with the poems content than you originally thought; this makes the
poem meaningful.
