Here are some of my students responses to the following question:
1) What themes, or life lessons, can we take from reading Twilight?
"We learn that love can come from anywhere."~Sharon
"Life is an adventure, wherever you go."~Kaity
"...follow your heart."~Christen
"The difficulty of having to chose between what is better for you or what you love."~Sallie
"No matter who or what you are, you can find love. When you do find it, hold on to it, even if you are a vampire."~Brandon
I found their answers to be quite perceptive and it makes me excited that the Twilight series has them seriously thinking about how each one of us have to come up with our own definition of what it is to be human, and what it means to live. What about you? What themes, or life lessons, do you think the Twilight series leaves us to contemplate?
