B. Lesson Proper
Motivation: Bring to class some photographs (printed on short bond paper or cut out from
newspapers and magazines) of devastation caused by typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban, Leyte or by any
recent storm in your locality. Post the photographs on the board and have everyone look at them.
What do you remember about this event and how did you feel knowing that there was a storm
How do you feel seeing the devastation in the photographs?
Can we really prepare enough for these natural calamities? Why or why not?
Activity: Respond critically to the following questions:
Which of the following statements is true about the persona, who speaks in the third person:
He/she addresses the Haiyan dead after the storm.
He/she catalogues the Haiyan dead after the storm.
He/she recalls the Haiyan dead after the storm.
In the perspective of the persona, what were each of the Haiyan dead doing?To plot the dramatic
situation in poem, chart the persons/individuals mentioned by the persona and the verbs or actions
attributed to them and as in a map, connect them with the phrase “The Haiyan Dead” in the middle
of the box.
What were the images of devastation dramatized in the poem? Write in the space below the lines
that describe the locality after the storm.
There were clear references to what the dead were doing in what was left of their town after the
typhoon. What do these suggest about the persona’s attitude towards the event?
Some parts of the poem do not follow the usual writing mechanics. How do you relate this with the
persona’s attitude towards the devastation?
The Haiyan dead, in memorializing of the persona, seems unable to have peace as they “do not
sleep” and keep on “looking” for certain people, objects, or places in the town. How do you relate the
two main actions of the Haiyan dead?
Thinking of the poem in terms of its metaphor, what was being suggested by the persona’s way of
perceiving the devastation? How is the event of the calamity related to the calling out of the Haiyan
Analysis: After critically responding to the text, let us remember the detail attributing the devastating
effect of the storm discussed in this lesson to climate change. Mount a short class discussion
covering three areas: relationship between weather disturbances and climate change; cases of
weather disturbances in the Philippines aside from Haiyan and actions being undertaken by the
government in light of these weather disturbances.
