    The Issues The question is: What do you think the grandmother meant when she said to the Misfit, "Why you " re one of my babies. You " re one of my own children!" Why do you think the Misfit killed her when she said that? Since the question is two parts, I'll answer it in two parts.

    8,043 words
    Learning with 'real-life' or 'lived' cases may be new to many students and somewhat confusing, likewise case tutors are rarely in full agreement as to the 'essentials of the case process' to be used.
