I see that your class is studying The Last Battle.
I see that your teacher has asked you to find out some answers.

But I BET she did not expect you get the answers by posting them on a forum so that adults could tell you. I am quite sure she expects you to read the book, and think about it.

Research means more than asking an adult for the answer.

I don't want to be unfair to these young students, but asking us the answers to their homework isn't going to help them in the long term.

It alarms me that when a teacher sets a class or a group to find out some information, their first response is to go to a discussion forum and ask some random adults to tell them the answer.

I should think the teacher expects them to do research by looking for commentaries on the book, or by reading and thinking about it.
There's a a plethora of books about the Narnia stories and their meaning, published in the last few years.

Ah, yes. The evils of the internet. ;) It's true though. :twisted: The internet is a tool of Satan to cheat students out of learning from their homework.

I do wonder about some of these questions .. okay, some people can't spell but most of the people who've posted on this forum lately have had appalling spelling.

Carol -- the "Guest" who posted above was me. (I don't know why it posted as Guest.)

I don't think you're being unfair on the posters at all. I was originally going to write "What do they teach them in these schools." Keep up the good work.

Harry - the answers you seek can be found towards the end of The Last Battle. It's really a good book - you should read it.
