The following worksheets advise students how to prepare for a mock trial to further their analysis of Chinua Achebe's novel Things Fall Apart. The mock trial will require students to determine who is to blame for Okonkwo’s death. Yes, Okonkwo commits suicide, but his motives for doing so are debatable. Who is to blame for his death? That is up to the class to decide. Similar to Okonkwo’s tribe, your class will transform into a case brought forth before the egwugwu, and the trial is a combination of the Nigerian law system and American law system. This is an engaging, lively class activity that teaches analysis in an innovative, competitive way that students enjoy.
