Teaching World History with "Things Fall Apart."
Feldmann, Martha J.
Teaching History: A Journal of Methods, v20 n2 p72-77 Fall 1995
Recommends using Chinua Achebe's novel of the 19th-century conflict between African tribal culture and English colonists in a world history class. Achebe's rich narrative, written in a graceful prose, is easily accessible to high school students. The novel replaces simplistic and abstract concepts with those more complex and concrete. (MJP)
