Anne Shirley, Part 1 Trivia Quiz
Current score: 0/12 View Scoring Summary
9. A ten-o’clock scholar
When Anne was late, the schoolmaster punished her by making her sit with Gilbert. Anne, highly insulted, declared she would never go to school again as long as Mr. Phillips was the teacher. What did Mrs. Rachel Lynde advise Marilla to do?
Your answer — A) Give Anne a whipping with a fair-sized birch switch — was incorrect.
Mrs. Rachel Lynde had brought up ten children, and wisely advised Marilla not to say school to Anne until Anne said it herself. Anne worked at her lessons at home, and did, as Mrs. Lynde predicted, eventually decide to return to school of her own accord.
