In literature and drama‚ there is a rising and falling pattern of events, which can be labeled: Exposition Rising Action Climax Falling Action Resolution Listed in this way‚ it is assumed that the intensity of the story is lowest at the beginning and end and highest during the climax. This pattern may or may not apply to Things Fall Apart. Create a graph that shows the level of intensity of Things Fall Apart in relation to the time certain key events occur. The bottom of the graph is divided by stages of the novel (beginning‚ middle‚ and end)‚ and the side of the graph is divided by the intensity of the action in the story. The result will be a line graph that illustrates the rise and fall of actions throughout the novel. Follow these instructions for creating a PLOT GRAPH: 1. Take the KEY EVENTS LIST and place the events in chronological order (1-22). 2. Determine whether the event has a HIGH‚ MIDDLE‚ or LOW level of intensity. 3. Enter the events in their appropriate places on the graph. 4. Connect the numbers‚ and create your graph. Compare your graph to those of your classmates and discuss any differences.

    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.
