About the Module
This module consists of the following:
Lesson 1-Poem,” I Am An African Child”
Lesson 2-Imagery in A Poem
Lesson 3-Context Clues and Their Types
Lesson 4- The Use and Importance of Context Clues
Post Test
General Directions: In answering all the activities for this module, use a
separate sheet of paper.
What I Need to Know
In this module, you will discover that oral literature and informative texts reflecting the
tradition and values of Afro-Asian countries have an influence on your distinctive
characteristics and identity as a Filipino and as an Asian. There will be reading texts about
Afro-Asian people, culture and traditions.
Reading comprehension is vital in going through your tasks in this module as it’s
important to all aspects of life as it is today. The good news is that one of the most important
reading comprehension skills, understanding vocabulary, can be easily mastered using a tool
always available to you: context. You can understand any new vocabulary term using only the
context around it. By looking at the elements of a passage, an unknown vocabulary word
reveals its meaning. For this reason, you'll never have to memorize every word—you only
have to remember how to use context clues.
Understanding how various types of context clues work can help you to understand
difficult vocabulary words, even those brand new to you. A text may be chock-full of words
you can't completely crack, but you shouldn't let that discourage you. Inside the passage,
where all the juicy tidbits of vocabulary clues lie, you can figure challenging words out.
General Objectives:
At the end of the lessons, you shall have:
identified and defined the different types of context clues which will aid in
understanding difficult words;
explained the importance of context clues in understanding unfamiliar words; and
written a paragraph about the culture of any Afro-Asian country using the
types of context clues.

What is the best definition of the term imagery?
Imagery is a writing technique meant to engage the reader's senses. The use of
imagery in a poem or story may be for the purpose of relaying to the reader a full
and thorough description of something.
● Creating sensory images is a strategy readers use to think more deeply about a
text. It is when a reader combines their experience and the information in the text
to create an image in their mind. This image can represent all of the five senses
(sight, smell, taste, hearing, touch or feeling)
Below are examples of imagery and the corresponding senses they connect to:
1. They go up and down steep hills. sight
2. Their legs take cold showers of morning dew on the weeds .feeling
3. They hear the peyee-peeyee of the crickets, and the twee-twee of half-awake
lizards . hearing
4. This chicken is finger-licking good. taste
5. People stank of sweat and unwashed clothes. Smell
Before learning how to identify the theme of a poem, let’s see what does a theme
mean. Theme is the central message or perception that the writer wants to convey to the
readers. A theme often teaches a moral lesson to the reader. It is a universal idea that can be
applied to anyone.
What I Can Do
Directions: Pick out the imagery and identify the corresponding
senses they connect to as sight, hearing, feeling, taste, or smell .

Read the poem:
If only you were a star
And I was a moon always with you
I could woo you in the deep night
And no one would ridicule us
And behind the clouds, you’d be mine.
Take note , the underlined words are imagery that helps us build the idea that
the theme of the poem is the intense love of someone to his sweetheart.

Young people have a lot of potential
Brother Peter Tabichi
Media caption
Peter Tabichi was named 2019's best teacher in the world.
Held aloft by his cheering pupils, Brother Peter Tabichi got a hero's welcome in Kenya when
he returned from Dubai brandishing the golden trophy he won after being named the world's
best teacher.
He was awarded the Global Teacher Prize in March by a panel of judges, but the beaming
faces of his students was testament to how much he was appreciated at home.
The modest Franciscan monk, who teaches maths and physics, gives away most of his salary
to support poorer pupils at the rural secondary school in Nakuru country.
Reflecting on the year, Brother Tabichi told the BBC that the award was "clear evidence that
Africa's young people have a lot of potential to positively transform the world".
It has also inspired many people and showed that "teachers play a very important role in
bringing the needed change in society through education", he added.
Brother Tabichi is also committed to encouraging his pupils, especially the girls, to get more
interested in science.
"Peter Tabichi is really a great teacher," pupil Teresia Kanini told the BBC, "and he deserves
the recognition and the award".

One of the strategies to help improve vocabulary is through the use of Context Clues.
Learning the meaning of words from the clues around your reading material can be the most
useful strategy to increase your word comprehension. Using the clues that surround an
unknown word helps to reveal its meaning.
What’s New
Try to guess the meaning of the underlined words and the context clues of the following
1. Genius: Everyone thought Steven was a genius because he got a perfect score on all of his
homework and tests in school.
2. Impede: In order to not impede the construction effort and to help the job get done quicker,
the town closed the road and kept people away.
3. Curiosity: Rebecca did not know what was behind the closed door. Her curiosity made her
open the door to find out.
What Are these?
1. Genius: Everyone thought Steven was a genius because he got a
perfect score on all of his homework and tests in school.
Definition: a very smart person.
Context Clues: perfect score
2. Impede: In order to not impede the
construction effort and to help the job get done quicker, the town
closed the road and kept people away.
Definition: slow down, stop, prevent
Context Clues: help get the job done quicker, kept road
closed https://www.netclipart.com/isee/JimiiT_barriers-that-impede-the-learning-of-gifted-gap/
3. Curiosity: Rebecca did not know what was behind the closed door. Her curiosity
made her open the door to find out.
Definition: desire to know about something
Context Clues: she opened the closed door because she didn’t know
about it
They are hints in the sentence that help good readers figure
out the meanings of unfamiliar words. When we look at the
“context” of a word, we look at how it is being used. Based on
how these words are used, and on our knowledge of the other
words in the sentence, we make an educated prediction as to
what the challenging vocabulary word may mean. Context
clues are hugely important because their comprehension and
effective usage leads to academic success.
Generally, a context clue can be categorized into one of five types:
1. DEFINITION / DESCRIPTION CLUES - The new term may be formally defined, or sufficient
explanation may be given within the sentence or in the following sentence. Clues to definition
include “that is,” commas, dashes, and parentheses.
Examples: His emaciation, that is, his skeleton-like appearance, was frightening to see.
“Skeleton-like appearance” is the definition of “emaciation.”
2. EXAMPLE CLUES - Sometimes when a reader finds a new word, an example might be
found nearby that helps to explain its meaning. Words like including, such as, and for example,
point out example clues.
Examples: Piscatorial creatures, such as flounder, salmon, and trout, live in the coldest parts
of the ocean.
“Piscatorial” obviously refers to fish.
3. SYNONYM / RESTATEMENT CLUES - The reader may discover the meaning of an
unknown word because it repeats an idea expressed in familiar words nearby.
Synonyms are words with the same meaning.
Examples: Flooded with spotlights – the focus of all attention – the new Miss America began
her year-long reign. She was the cynosure of all eyes for the rest of the evening.
“Cynosure” means “the focus of all attention.”
4. CONTRAST / ANTONYM CLUES - Antonyms are words with opposite meanings. An
opposite meaning context clue contrasts the meaning of an unfamiliar word with the meaning
of a familiar term. Words like “although,” “however,” and “but” may signal contrast clues.
Examples: When the light brightens, the pupils of the eyes contract; however, when it grows
darker, they dilate.
“Dilate” means the opposite of “contract.”
5. INFERENCE CLUES - Sufficient clues might be available for the careful reader to make an
educated guess at the meaning.
Example: a. She told her friend, “I’m through with blind dates forever. What a dull evening! I
was bored every minute. The conversation was absolutely vapid.”
“Vapid” means “uninteresting.”
What I Can Do
Directions: From the following article, pick out 5 difficult words and the context clues
which help you understand those words. Then, copy the table that follows and fill it with the
needed answers.
Daily Life and Social Customs
Life in the Philippines generally revolves around the extended family, including
parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins (up to several times removed), and other
relatives. For Catholic families, godparents—those to whom care of children is entrusted
should the parents die or otherwise be incapacitated—also figure prominently in the kinship
network. Members of extended families typically gather for major life events such as baptisms
and confirmations (for Catholic Filipinos), circumcisions (for Muslim Filipinos), and marriages,
as well as for major religious and other national holidays.

‘Asian values’
By: Gideon Lasco - @inquirerdotnet
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:26 AM November 09, 2017
When Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano recently said that “we should have an
Asian mindset, Asian way of solving problems,” he was tapping into the tradition of various
regional leaders invoking the idea of an “Asian way” or “Asian values.”
Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew was an early exponent of this ideology, arguing that
Western values are not relevant to the region, and citing its different cultural and
socioeconomic context. Instead, he emphasized Asian (or what he called “Confucian”) values:
harmony, stability, discipline, the primacy of family and community over the individual.
