A few examples if you want something to set for your class or alternatively for practice. I’ve labelled each link with an overview of what each extract/question is about:

Richard and Kainene’s relationship
Odenigbo’s character during the war
Westerner attitudes to Biafra
Change in Olanna and Odenigbo – Baby (Example Response)

If it is easier, here is a word document with all my extracts nicely formatted and ready to print for your class:

Author: Mr Sir

Although I've only been teaching Literature since 2011 and did my degree in History, I think that makes me better placed than many Lit teachers to provide notes that make sense and aren't garbled and wrapped up with inaccessible terminology and effluent nonsense. After adventures in Uganda and Uzbekistan, I am now settling down in the Netherlands. However, currently I am just about as unsettled as I have ever been, with a new job, a new baby, a new country and a hundred other things going on! Ask me a question, collaborate or abuse me.
