As Things Fall Apart ends, Okonkwo has committed suicide and the District Commissioner enlists help in removing the body. The commissioner also predicts that he will write a book based on his experiences in the Nigerian country. Okonkwo’s wives are not mentioned, and we do no know what becomes of Nwoye after he converts to Christianity. The Ibo tribe is basically‚ “falling apart.” Their lives have been altered, and now you will decide how their lives change. There are three examples of possible narratives for you to use in a sequel to Things Fall Apart. Choose one or more of the examples for guidance, or make up one of your own‚ and write a one-page summary of your sequel. Feel free to create new material to help your sequel, but make sure it is based on the ideas from Things Fall Apart. Example of starting ideas: 1. Nwoye is living in Umuofia and is actively involved with the Christian missionaries. He returns to his family in an effort to persuade them to convert to the Christian religion. 2. Ezinma returns for Okonkwo’s burial and decides to take a major role in rebuilding her family. Because she is a woman, she is faced with hostility and obstacles. 3. Obierika, once the peacemaker of the Umuofian leaders, rethinks his position in the clan. He becomes an activist in trying to rebuild his tribe, much to the dismay of‚ not only the Christian missionaries, but also the British colonizers‚ who have begun relocating to Umuofia.

Name: ________________________________ Date:_________________ Wrap Up Sequels Objective: Writing creatively Predicting future outcomes Activity Every day‚ new sequels to books and movies are created, and quite frequently‚ they are not as entertaining as the originals. Some sequels are redundant because the elements that they share with the originals do not change. Sometimes, the original work is simply not a good basis for a sequel because it leaves no “loose ends” or unanswered questions to address in a sequel.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
