What question could you create, centered about Orbiting Jupiter, and especially Chapter 6, that would require CRITICAL THINKING to answer?
Hey Olivia! What do you think of the book so far? I think its a good book. I love how Joseph will do anything to get to Jupiter. Who's your favorite character? Mines Joseph he's so brave and not afraid to do anything. I don't like Joseph's father Mr. Brooks it seems he's in for the money! What do you think of Joseph running away to find Jupiter? So my actual question for you is Why is Ms. Stroud not letting Joseph see Jupiter?
If you were to write a soundtrack for your Orbiting Jupiter movie, which songs (3-4) would you chose and why did you chose them?
The 3 songs I would pick for Orbiting Jupiter are I know places by Taylor Swift, Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift, and Little do you Know by Alex and Sierra.
The first song I think would be a good fit for the soundtrack is I know places by Taylor Swift. I picked this song because when I listened to the lyrics it reminded me of how Joseph felt when he couldn't see Madeleine anymore because of what they did. I also think this would be a good song because in the lyrics it says "I know places we won't be found" I think what Taylor's trying to say is that she knows places that bullies won't find her. I think this relates to Orbiting Jupiter because when Joseph finally went on the bus to go to school people on the bus were saying to Jack "Stay away from that kid, he's bad news, he's done bad things, Joseph's a bad influence." Joseph overheard and wanted to get off the bus, run away, and hide where no one could find him.
The next song I would pick is Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift. I picked this song because Joseph doesn't feel very safe because everyone kept beating him up and they think he's different than everyone else, the people at school think he's dangerous because of his past. I also think this would be a good song because at the beginning of the book when Joseph first met his foster family he didn't feel safe and didn't want to talk, but now in chapter 4/5 he's feeling safer because he knows his new family isn't going to hurt him, and he's also talking more because he can trust them.
The third song I picked for Orbiting Jupiter is Little do you Know by Alex and Sierra. I picked this song because the song is about 2 people that broke up and are broken inside. I think this relates to Orbiting Jupiter because in chapter 4 Joseph was telling his foster family about his past with Madeleine. When Joseph found out that he couldn't see her anymore he was heart broken, he was so heart broken that he walked 7 miles just to see her. When he found out that Madeleine died he got depressed and didn't want to talk to anyone one. I also think this song would be a good fit because in the lyrics it says “little do you know I need a little more time” to me this makes me think of when Joseph found out that Madeleine died and he needed more time to think about it because he loved her.
