Inference And Insight
This Grade 12 Reading Literature Comprehension worksheet centers on Chinua Achebe’s “Things Fall Apart” and the complex character of Okonkwo. Students are tasked with providing a detailed description of Okonkwo’s personality, noting down all the traits and characteristics they can discern from the novel.
Next, students are guided to reflect on their description and determine the balance between explicit traits directly mentioned in the novel and traits inferred through their reading. They must identify three inferred qualities and locate the passages within the novel that led them to these conclusions.
This exercise encourages critical analysis and close reading, helping students delve into the depths of Okonkwo’s character development.
