About the Book
This WebQuest is a supplementation to the novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. The book highlights the life of Okonkwo, a man who rose to a position of greatness in his village of Umuofia, only to fall from this position due to his choices in life and the onset of British Colonization. This Webquest will ask students to conduct background research and to consider how Okonkwo's successes led to his ultimate fate. They will be presented with a series of tasks that correspond to events in the book. These tasks will aid students in determining deeper understanding of the text. Students will need to consider the text and information provided through the web in order to prepare for their final analysis essay.
