Things Fall Apart Character Quilt
Assignment:
Create a paper ‘Quilt Square’ with a motto and illustration representing
a character in Things Fall Apart, and write a paragraph explaining the
choices you have made.
Purpose:
One of Achebe’s purposes in writing Things Fall Apart was to present
African people as complex, human figures (rather than the stereotypes
present in most writing about Africa by Europeans). You will closely
analyze characters to understand who they are, and how individual
personalities affect choices and relationships.
Process:
1. Choose one of the following characters: Unoka, Okonkwo,
Nwoye, Ekwefi, or Ezinma.
2. Write an original motto for that character. In this case, a motto
is a saying that sums up a person’s attitude towards life.
Things to think about:
 What Values does your character hold?
 What does Achebe reveal to you about his/ her
characteristics and qualities?
 What choices does your character make?
 How does your character affect other characters?
3. Choose an illustration or image that you think represents your
character. Use the information you have learned about Ibo
Culture to find a culturally appropriate image.
4. Create a ‘quilt square’ that has the motto around the edges and
an illustration in the center.
5. Type one analytical paragraph explaining your motto and
illustration choices. Your paragraph must include two quotes
from the text and analysis of how those quotes support your
motto. Submit to turnitin.com (Full Name, Quilt Square)
