This Image represents my theme question because it shows a dog that thought the hammock would be a good place to rest. But then the dogs legs fell through the hammock. Showing a good idea gone wrong.

How my first book answers the question "what happens when a good idea goes bad?"

The book The 100 answers my question because it has a lot of good ideas gone bad.

Ex: "He reached out and began to pry up the flimsy edge of the airlock wincing when he heard the faint hiss. Then he turned and raced back up the stairs, trying to ignore the horror welling up in his stomach. He could barely stand to think of what he'd done, but as he hurried down the corridor, he told himself he'd done what he needed to do." That helps me answer my theme question because he put the entire ship in jeopardy so he could be with the girl he loved. And after he was sent down with the girl, the ship slowly lost oxygen. They had to seal off a level of the ship to save half the people.

How my second book answers the question "what happens when a good idea goes bad?"

The book Glow answers my question because Glow's plot contains a lot of daring ideas. Also a lot of failed plans. Ex. " 'Waverly!' don't do this Waverly!' Amanda screamed, but Waverly ignored her as she backed toward the port side door. She was almost there when she sensed someone behind her. The guard with the scar had Samantha by the throat, and he was pointing his gun at her head." This helps me answer my theme question because Waverly did what she thought was right, but then it failed and got her friend killed.

How my third book answers the question "what happens when a good idea goes bad?"

The book Invisibility answers my theme question because there are lots of good ideas gone bad, and bad ideas that were good. Ex. " 'I ate too much, or had food poisoning. Only it was curses instead of food.' 'Wheres Laurie? We couldn't go to my house in case mom was home'" This evidence helps me answer my question because it shows the aftermath of a very bad idea that could get Elizabeth killed. Also this quote helps me understand what the question is asking because it shows an example of what to have when looking for a quote.

How My Theme Question Is Answered In The Real World

My theme question is answered in the real world by slavery in the 1800's. Slavery was a very big debate then and some people wanted slavery and some wanted it abolished. The ones who wanted it though it was a great idea to have free labor. Others wanted it abolished and that how the civil war started. The civil war was the outcome of a "good" idea gone "wrong". Here is a video on the civil war/slavery.

My theme question is relevant to my life because i have experienced a lot of good ideas gone wrong. Ex. "Building a big sled jump at the bottom of a 100 foot tall hill...", "Riding a clear plastic tub on a skateboard down a hill..." "shaking a 2 liter coca-cola bottle until it foams through the cap, taking the cap off and dumping an entire packet of Mentos inside..."

How a poem answers my theme question

"Life is full of restrictions, Too many decisions, Not enough organization, Making fatal collisions, Without provisions, No sense of precision, Too much division, And a lot of diversions, Losing my vision, Lost my inspiration, No supervision, Life's in need of revision, Due to bad decisions, Of good intentions." Keli Mims
