Teacher’s Page Things Fall Apart Chapters 1-13 Review Objective: Increasing comprehension and retention through discussion questions Activity Answer each question succinctly and thoroughly. 1. How does Okonkwo’s childhood impact his adult life? Because of Okonkwo’s resentment of and dislike for his father‚ Unoka, he strives to be the exact opposite of him. Unoka was a debtor, so Okonkwo worked hard to be a successful farmer. Unoka wasted time lying around playing the flute, so Okonkwo made sure that his hours were spent working to achieve titles, yams, and wives. As Okonkwo married and had children, he was adamant that neither his wives nor children would ever see him weak or showing any signs of femininity. He also reflected great anger if his own children showed weak traits. 2. Why does Achebe present Part One from Okonkwo’s point of view?

    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.
