Teacher’s Page Things Fall Apart Part One Chapters 1-3 Characterization Objective: Interpreting characterization of major characters Activity After reading the first three chapters of Things Fall Apart, the reader has a good sense of the personality of both Okonkwo and his father‚ Unoka. Follow the directions to complete a brief oral character sketch. 1. Imagine you are either Okonkwo or Unoka. 2. Go back through the first act and list all the details you can find about your character. Include any physical characteristics, mannerisms, traits revealed directly or indirectly (what other characters say or think about him), and your impressions of this character’s voice. 3. Make a brief sketch of what you think your character looks like. (You may wish to research the clothing of the Ibo tribe in 1890s Nigeria.) 4. Write a one-page sketch from your character’s perspective that begins and ends with the same statement: “I am _____________________________.” Create a monologue about who your character believes himself to be. 5. Be prepared to deliver your monologue to the class. Use appropriate oral presentation techniques, such as speaking in a clear and audible tone, making eye contact, and using effective gestures.

    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.
