TASK:
This written assignment is a persuasive writing research essay designed to enable you to
analyze one (1) LITERARY CRITICISM from the ST. MICHAEL LIBRARY DATABASE that
explores an element in Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart.
It is a FORMAL, ACADEMIC response to agree or disagree with the author of the literary
criticism’s thesis. You have to decide whether the thesis is VALID or INVALID and
support your stance using textual proof from the literary criticism AND the novel, Things
Fall Apart. You must use both a primary source (Things Fall Apart) and a secondary
source (online Lit Crit) from the GALE database
There must be an introduction, conclusion, and as many arguments (body paragraphs)
as you deem necessary to prove your claims. The length is 750-1000 words

page). Remember, QUALITY over QUANTITY. A MAX of 4 pages will be evaluated. Please
DO NOT go over 4 typed pages. The purpose of this assignment is for you to analyze a lit
crit and decide on its validity in a short and concise essay format
You are welcome to use your Things Fall Apart notes and responses in your arguments
and ideas.
