Work Time

Today you will examine the first two chapters of Things Fall Apart , looking for clues about Umuofian society.

One way to interact with important parts of a text is by using a Dialectical Journal . A Dialectical Journal is a chart where you list key lines or quotations from the text and comment on their significance or ask questions about them.

  • Create a Dialectical Journal #1 in your notebook.
  • Work with your teacher to come up with a couple of examples of Dialectical Journal entries for Things Fall Apart .
  • Ask your teacher any questions you have about how to complete three more entries on your own.
