Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe Audiobook With over eight million copies in print world wide, Achebe's work is a definitive novel in African literature. Filled with powerful language and finely drawn characters, Things Fall Apart also shimmers with the sounds and sights of village life. Okonkwo is born into poverty, with a wastrel for a father. Driven by ambition, he works tirelessly to gain the prosperity of many fields and wives, and prestige in his village. But he is harsh as well as diligent. As he sees the traditions of his people eroded by white missionaries and government officials, he lashes out in anger. Things Fall Apart traces the growing friction between village leaders and Europeans determined to save the heathen souls of Africa. But its hero, a noble man who is driven by destructive forces, speaks a universal tongue. Audiobook Preview Audiobook Keynote Audiobook Review Audiobook Interview
By Chinua Achebe - Read by Zachary Ramsey - Student Subtitling Project - 2-20-2018 Same-Language-Subtitling! The unappreciated power of kinetic typography! The human brain is naturally wired to track text. Advertisers know that the inclusion of text (and especially kinetic text) increases audience engagement and recall by about 25%. Studies have shown a similar response across literacy and age levels. Media uses this tool to narrow and clarify it’s intended message and to increase engagement and consumerism. However, quality subtitling (synchronized to audio on phonetic level) can also majorly impact literacy levels. Mere exposure to Same-Language-Subtitling has been shown to impact viewing audiences by between 14% to 24% growth per year! REALLY THINK ABOUT THAT CLAIM. In the USA, our best reading remediation programs claim significant success at the 4% level. There is a massive ongoing study in India experimenting with Same-Language-Subtitling and music videos that has proven that viewing media with SLS significantly impacts literacy levels for all reading levels and all age groups. Take a look at PlanetRead | Home and read their research — it has significant implications for impacting literacy everywhere! Also visit Same-Language-Subtitling to see ongoing studies of SLS use for English speaking audiences. Most of the 'SLS - lyrics onscreen' samples you will find on my page were done by students as part of a reading literacy demonstration project.

In which John Green teaches you about Chinua Achebe's 1958 novel, Things Fall Apart. You'll learn about Igboland, a region in modern day Nigeria, prior to the arrival of the British Empire. Achebe tells the story of Okonkwo, an Igbo villager who has worked his way up from life as a sharecropped and become a respected leader in his community. Okonkwo has a tragic fall, and is exiled. And then the trouble starts. British missionaries arrive, and change everything. Things Fall Apart has a lot to say about colonization, and even something to say about decolonization.
