A Structural Approach on Short Stories Used in Teaching the Grade 6 Pupils

Susana D. Dela Cruz


Abstract: Education is very essential to every individual. It is a change for the better and could change the life of a person. This study aimed to analyze and interpret the short stories of Ma. Melanie L. Padohinog, which the researcher used in teaching the Grade 6 pupils. This offers an extensive interdisciplinary understanding on the relevance of the short stories to the pupils. It describes the narrative functions using Vladimir Propp?s theory of Russian Fairy tales as to how the short stories be read in terms of narrative structure, and how these literary works be used to inculcate the pupils. The narrative functions found in the three short stories were: initial situation/preparation, interdiction, violation, delivery, trickery, struggle, victory, liquidation, solution, and recognition. The short stories become the springboard of moral lessons for the pupils to apply in their real life situation. Through them, the pupils have been cognizant of the values they need to have and show or share with others.
