Do you think that students should only be allowed to bring a certain amount of sugar to each school day or do you think that they can bring whatever they want. Also do you think it would be much better if all schools had cafeterias and the school could moghtader what the kids eat. Another question i have for you is do you believe that a school garden that grows produce and can give off vegetables and gives vegetation would be good because it could give kids healthy food for free
A Habit of Highly Effective Teens
Sharpen The Saw
What it means to Sharpen The Saw is to always be positive about the 4 main areas of your life and to constantly try and make these areas better in your life, the the four main areas are, physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual. This would have an impact on me getting ready for high school because everyone isn't perfect in life but you strive to get better in life. When I strive to better in life I always start from the bottom and make my way up in life, like not having much interest in sports but I can keep trying and when I eventually get better I will love them a lot more and strive to get even better. When people in life try to drag you down you don’t let them you keep doing what you love, say that someone tells you that you're stupid, ugly, fat, skinny, short, to tall or just to original those people don't realize that half those traits go with them to and that having those features are bad they will later on help you in life. I strive to be like my role models because I feel like if be like them i'll have a great life like them or be like them when people strive to be like others they have to be positive not negative, be able to take risks in life to try and change or just try and change in a positive way. I think the term Sharpen The Saw would help me out in the high school because it will help me make new friends make me a new person or just make me a better person in general, when you work on those key traits in life they're just helping you open up to new things like being able to do things you couldn't do before. When people learn new things it’s kinda like a milestone like learning how to ride a bike or learning how to make new friends,
Critical Thinking Question?
If you were to change one of the four main traits in your life what would you want to change and why( Physical, Social/Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual)?
Hi Owen my names Connor I play hockey, Football, and Soccer My favorite is Hockey. I have a pet Dog and his name is Rigby he's a Chihuahua. In the book so far i'm enjoying it my favorite part is when Joseph had a shovel full of snow and chucked it at Jack and they had fun doing it. So my question I would give to is ( If you had to pick a cartoon, T.V series or show to represent the book what one would you pick). The show you pick must relate to the topic and have things in common you also must support why you chose the show.
What songs (3-4) would you pick
My first song (Tip Toe Through The Tulips)
My first song I would pick is Tiptoe through the Tulips I would pick this song in the part where Jack and Joseph are walking to school and throwing stones at the bell. The song is a mellow high pitched song and it’s very calming. I’d also pick this song because the movie it’s in is a very serious movie Insidious which is a horror movie but the song is a very mellow song. The part in the book when they are walking is when Joseph starts talking to Jack a bit more so the song would go into it because it’s a happy song and shows that Joseph is getting to be more happy and more talkative with Jack and family
My second Song (Lonely)
My second song would be Lonely because that's how Joseph would have felt when he was put up for adoption and when Maddie passed away while giving birth to Jupiter. The song so Lonely is a very sad and depressing song it talks about how it feels to be lonely all the time and having no one to help you out when times are dark and depressing for yourself. When Joseph lost Maddie and then lost Jupiter he was sad and depressed because of his loss. The first verse of Lonely is im “Im so lonely I have nobody to call my own i'm so lonely Mr. lonely i'm on my own” to me that is depressing and sad to here just like hearing that Joseph lost Maddie and Jupiter. Also this song tells about how life can be depressing when you have no body with you and Joseph had no friends when he was in his new school
My third song (Can’t touch This)
My third song is Can’t Touch This i’m choosing this song because it’s a song that fits well when Joseph got in the fight with Nick Porter, Brian Boss, and Jay Perkins because the song is meant for a fight as in you're dodging the punches from the other person you're fighting against. Also one of the greatest boxers of all time, Muhammad Ali had a crazy 10 seconds dodging all 21 punches while trapped in the corner dodging all the punches from Michael Dokes and then someone took the time to put that song into the video of him dodging the punches. Joseph may not have dodged the punches but he definitely put up a fight against the 3 so that’s why I picked this song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otCpCn0l4Wo
I think the actor Robert Sloan would be the kid to go with as Joseph In the movie Orbiting Jupiter. I would pick him to cast for Joseph because he's in a horror movie and in horror movie most people are serious in the situation their in Robert Sloan acted in the movie sinister 2 rated one of the scariest movies of 2015. Joseph is a serious kid and hes gone through a lot just like Robert in sinister 2. I also think they show some of the same traits darker hair and darker eyes. Robert was also the kid in sinister 2 that was always the most serious out of the people in the family because he new that something was wrong with his sibling. They also relate good because they are very open about what their saying, Joseph also doesn't care about what people say about him he just has passion for what he says just like Robert Sloan. Both of their family's relate good to because they show that their children are a bit strange but they know that they have some special talent inside them like Joseph might be very athletic because if he can climb the rope to the sealing in 30 seconds with 2 hands and know legs. So in my opinion I would pick Robert Sloan to play the lead roll of Joseph.
I think the actor Owen Vaccaro would be Jack because I think they would show some of the same traits. Owen and Jack show athletic traits Owen plays on his school basketball team and Jack can climb up the rope under a minute. Their both 10 years old and their both in grade 6 and they both have weird siblings. Jack has a step brother named Joseph and Owen has Scarlet Estevez. They both have nice family's to even tho Owen had a step Dad he was still very nice. They also show kindness to their friends at school and friends out side of school. Jack also shows respect to his friends same with Owen. Owen in the movie Daddy's Home gets bullied and I have a feeling that later on in the book Jack will get picked on by Kids and Joseph will be their to stand up for him. Also in the movie Daddy's Home theirs a dog nicknamed Tumor because they say he (He grows on you) The dog doesn't like Brad his step dad same thing with rose she does not like Some people but if you rub her rump she does like you. So in my opinion I would pick Owen Vaccaro to play the lead roll as Jack.
I would pick Arnold Schwarzenegger to be Mr. Canton. I would pick Arnold to be Mr. Canton because they both have an identical attitude they don't take any crap from anyone they like things done how they want it to be done and their very strict,and like to work alone. Arnold in most movies he acted in was a hero or the good guy he liked people to follow the rules and didn't take any crap from bad guys or Villon's I think that relates to Mr. Canton good because he likes people following the rules all the time and he doesn't take crap from little kids. As a vice principal their normally older then the average teacher their normally in their 40-60 and Arnold is 65 years old so I think he would fit into the roll perfectly as the vice principal. Also in the movie ( Conan the Barbarian) a movie Arnold Played in every won treated him like the leader of his village just like Mr. Canton every treats him like he's the leader of their school. Most people don't like Mr. Canton because they think he's to strict Arnold in most of movies is a strict leader of his village, town, city because he likes people to follow his rules because he likes a good village, town or city because he doesn't want people to be hurt, harmed, or killed. So in my opinion I would Pick Arnold Schwarzenegger to play the leader roll of Mr. Canton.
How do you think Joseph changed from chapter 1 to chapter 2?
The labels I would give to Joseph are independent, and open minded.
