”Proverbs are the palm-oil with which words are eaten.” Proverbs from Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart are the focus of a worksheet that ask groups to examine a series of proverbs taken from the novel. Prior to reading, the groups provide a possible explanation of the saying. After reading, groups revisit their explanation and offer a second interpretation based on their new understanding.
