WiT Chapters 11-12 Discussion Questions, Due April 1

Great job on your comments!  This week, please be sure to PROOFREAD, and use specific details!  Also, don't keep answering the same questions.  Let's make this last week of WiT really interesting!
  1. In Chapter 10, Mr. Murry told Meg, " We were sent here for something. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose." Now, Aunt Beast tells Meg, "We are called according to His purpose..." What do you think they mean by purpose?
  2. What is Calvin’s gift from Mrs. Whatsit? How did this gift help him to know what the Three Mrs. W’s really are?
  3. Explain the title of the last chapter.
  4. Would you recommend this book to a friend?  Why or why not?  BE SPECIFIC and GO IN-DEPTH!
