Name: ________________________________ Date:_________________ Chapter 10 Writing a Play Objective: Rewriting prose into dramatic literature Activity Throughout this chapter‚ there is much interaction and dialogue between the Umuofian villagers and the sacred egwugwu . The mystery and reverence surrounding the village governing body‚ combined with the excitement and anticipation felt by the villagers‚ creates an atmosphere of festivity. “Everybody in the crowd was talking. It was like the market. From a distance the noise was a deep rumble carried by the wind.” (Pg. 88) Once the cases are heard, the decisions of the egwugwu are final. No one in the Ibo tribe questions the members or their legislative indictments. Read the chapter. Imagine the characters on a stage; then‚ rewrite the chapter as a scene in a play. Below is an example that you may use to start your scene. Make sure you include appropriate stage directions as needed. S - 61 Reproducible Student Worksheet Student’s Page Things Fall Apart

Teacher’s Page Things Fall Apart Chapter 11 Video Production Objective: Comprehending, interpreting, and applying events in a novel Activity Story-telling is a major element of the Ibo culture. Life lessons, education, and moral values were passed from generation to generation in the form of fables. The fable surrounding the reason “why Tortoise’s shell is not smooth” (Pg. 99) reflects the traditional heritage and culture of the Ibo people. The fable tells a story and ends with a moral lesson. Re-enact a fable and present it to the class. Note to Teacher: You may want to assign an Indian legend such as the Seneca Indians’ “The Legend of Niagara Falls” so the class can understand that legends such as these are common to many cultures.

    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.
