Themes In Action
This Grade 12 Reading Literature Comprehension worksheet focuses on Chinua Achebe’s novel “Things Fall Apart” and aims to help students grasp the central themes within the narrative. Students are tasked with identifying and describing two prominent themes from the novel.
Once the themes are identified, students must locate three passages for each theme that illustrate its development throughout the story. These passages can be brief quotations or longer excerpts, cited by page or paragraph numbers. This exercise encourages students to analyze how themes are woven into the fabric of the narrative and how they evolve as the story progresses, deepening their understanding of the novel’s underlying messages.
