How did you first hear about the Twilight Series?
"My sister read it first, and she kept bragging about how good it was, so I started to read it." ~Sharon F
"[I heard about it from] my teacher Ms. Truitt and my friends. But they made me do it, sorry Doby (HP reference)." ~Maurice
The rest of the quotes involve students blaming me incessantly for their now all-consuming obsessions, so I think we can just skip that part....besides we all know it's the outstanding work of Meyer that is the culprit.
If you could create the soundtrack for the Twilight movie, which songs would you include?
"All Around Me"~Flyleaf
"Crazy in Love"~Beyonce
"Helena"~My Chemical Romance
"The Ghost of You"~My Chemical Romance
"Seize the Day"~Avenged Sevenfold
"I caught Fire"~The Used
"Never Too Late"~Three Days Grace
"Lips like Morphine"~Kill Hannah
(All song choices above were suggested by students)
"My Body is a Cage"~Arcade Fire
"My Last Breath"~Evanescence
(Songs suggested by the nerdy teacher who has way too much time on her hands, or is just too fascinated with these books....)
"Iris"~Goo Goo Dolls
"Painted on my Heart"~The Cult
"Seventeen Forever"~Metro Station
"Hide and Seek"~Imogen Heap
"You are the Moon"~The Hush Sound
"Do What I Have to Do."~Sarah McLachlan
(Songs suggested by some of you, who are just too awesome for words for posting comments)
*We will have two more major posts coming up in the next week! Thanks to Twilight Lexicon and Twilighters for taking the time to showcase our site. I can't express our gratitude. If I can ever figure out how to make a button / banner for this site, I hope to link to other Twilight sites in order to keep this project going. (If anyone can give me some pointers, please do) We can't do it without all of you fellow Twilighters out there! On Thursday, we will be posting a story on Maurice's Twilight expirence! Next weekend, please check back for our second round of questions and pictures! Our main goal is to get all of you Twilighters invovled as well, this being said....
Please take a moment or two to look at the song choices above. If you had to pick one song as the theme song for the movie, which one would you pick? At the end of the week, we will announce the winner! I purposely left off Muse because we all know how connected it already is to the books. The plan is to have my students analyze the top favorites for another weekly segment.
Please keep checking back for more goodies!!
