Things Fall Apart

Here is Chinua Achebe discussing, Things Fall Apart, on its 50th anniversary. Consider the concept of continuity and change over time and write a brief, thoughtful comment on the significance of the novel. I look forward to reading your ideas.


Welcome WHAP'ers! I hope you had a wonderful summer and tons of fun with your Summer Assignments.  I know you are going to miss that map in your life. Stay tuned for the Best WHAP Map winner. Selfie and decorative crown to follow.

Some points of business: there is a page that has links to all of the Powerpoints I created to accompany our chapters in Strayer.  You can find it on the right hand side of the blog. Use them for review and to assess the detail needed in your notes.  As promised, a sample set of notes from Chapter 1 is linked here.  WORKING ON LINK I think they have a nice balance of depth, organization and overall length.
