                                                  About Dr. Seuss
                             Theodor Seuss Geisel (pen name Dr. Seuss) is perhaps the most influential children’s
                         book writer since Aesop or the Grimm brothers. His children books have proven
                         themselves as timeless works that continue to appeal to the masses of young and
                         influential minds.
                         Born in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1904, Seuss drew much of the inspiration for his
                         books from his childhood home and memories. Whimsical rhymes about babbling
                         streams, quaint streets and magical forests are frequently mentioned in Seuss’ rhymes.
                         Like Picasso, Seuss spent years perfecting the silliness of his extensive collection. He
                         graduated from Dartmouth College, and began a degree at Oxford shortly after
                         completing his undergraduate degree. He was a highly intelligent man, but his personality
                         was rooted in sarcasm, recklessness and humor. In short, he was a rebel and a rule
                         breaker.
                         Seuss got fired as an editorial writer at Dartmouth College for throwing a drinking party
                         during the prohibition. Later, instead of completing a degree at Oxford, Seuss decided to
                         tour Europe.
                         Before becoming a children’s book author, Seuss worked as a political cartoonist during
                         WWII, specifically targeting the Third Reich and Nazi Germany.


                         Seuss passed away in 1991 at the age of 87. He published 44 books in 15 different
                         languages, leaving a legacy that will not soon be forgotten. More than 200 million copies
                         of his books have been published, and his works have yielded 11 television series. At the
                                       very least, Dr. Seuss is a name to be remembered in children’s literature.

                                                       About Your Project
                                         Learning objective: You will be able to relate a culturally
                                         relevant issue to a book by a familiar and well known author.
                         What to do: This PowerPoint is interactive. Each of the titles above are hot links that
                         will bring you to a synopsis of the book and suggestions for your paper topic. You will
                         choose one of the books on this list to write a research paper on. You may use one
                         of the suggested research topics or propose your own to me. Your topic must relate
                         to the Dr. Seuss book you choose, and must be something that can be researched
                         using electronic and textual resources.
                         Your Guidelines:
                         -A 3-5 page typed research paper, written in proper MLA format.
                         -12 point font, Times New Roman, double spaced, 1” margins.
                         -A complete and accurate works cited page (use Purdue OWL!)
                         -Four sources, one of which must be the Dr. Seuss book you choose. Two of the
                         remaining sources must be in print. The third may be an electronic source, but you
                         may not use Wikipedia as an official source.
                         -Each of the sources you choose must be explicitly or implicitly cited at least two
                         times each (meaning you will either use direct quotes, or refer to a specific aspect of
                         your source).
                         -You must have a clear thesis that is making a point.
                         -Have fun! The point of this assignment is to explore something you are
                                     genuinely interested in.

                                           Oh, The Thinks You Can Think


                         Oh, the Thinks You Can Think is a story
                         of possibilities. It illustrates the unusual
                         and the possible and the almost
                         unbelievable. It encourages imagination
                         and a strong sense of independent
                         thinking.
                         Possible paper topics:
                         Who do you think the most influential
                         inventor in history was? In what way does
                         this book relate to them?
                         Do you think there is a social stigma
                         toward people who think differently than
                         the mass majority? In what way? Write a
                         paper on one historical example of this.

                         imagination run wild as he walks down
                         Mullberry street. He sees fanciful cars,
                         marching bands, animal parades and
                         so much more. But when his father
                         asks him what he saw on Mullberry
                         street, he decides just to tell the boring
                         old truth.

                           This is not a Dr. Seuss book. It is a book adaptation of a short
                           film that Dr. Seuss created. Gerald McCloy is a young boy who
                           learned to speak in sounds instead of words.
                           His difference in speech angers his father
                           and makes him the center of ridicule at
                           school. Even his teacher won’t let him stay
                           in class. What does the future hold for

                                             there are many cultures who have

                                             point that many people have fled the
                                             country. Focus on one of these cultures,
                                             and discuss what it means for a family that
                                             left the country to live in a different
                                             location, and what it means for those who
                                             chose to stay. Take a critical standpoint on
                                             modern day immigration. Be sure to use

                         generation of youth, and is full of all of the things
                         youth has accomplished so far and can accomplish
                         in the future. It leaves readers with the strong

                         history). Do an in depth case study of the struggles
                         and triumphs of this person’s life. Then, discuss the
                         impact this person has had on our world.
                         Consider this statement: the success of a child
                         relies heavily on support of an older mentor. Do you
                         agree? Research the effects an adult supporter can
                         have in a young persons life.

Yertle The Turtle   Bartholomew and The Oobleck       Would You Rather be a Bullfrog     The Lorax       The King’s Stilts The Butter Battle Book

                                                  Would You Rather be a Bullfrog

                           This book is a charming, “bright eyed and early” book that
                           poses series of choices for young kids. “Would you rather be a
                           clarinet? A trombone? Or a drum?” Though there is not clear
                           plot to the story, the questions are cute, farfetched, and funny.

                                                  Possible paper topics:
                                                  It’s often been said that there are two
                                                  types of people in this world: those who
                                                  are jerks and those who are not. We often
                                                  here that prase: “There are two types of
                                                  people in this world,” and it’s always
                                                  accompanied by two opposites (ex- those
                                                  who ski and those who don’t. Those who
                                                  can take a joke, and those who can’t.) Do
                                                  you agree? Are there really only two
                           options when putting people into categories? Use Would You
                           Rather be a Bullfrog to write a paper on ultimatums (eg—you
                           are either this, or this). Do you think society is designed to
                           follow ultimatums? Do you think it’s human nature?

                                                       The Lorax

                           The lorax is the funniest of creatures: hairy and short and
                           stout. But he speaks for the trees. When the Once-ler comes
                           along and discovers the beautiful truffula trees, he begins to
                           chop them down and creates a lucrative industry knitting the
                                                truffula tree fluff into a fancy contraction.
                                                What will be the fate of the truffula trees
                                                and the beautiful creatures that depend
                                                on.
                                                Possible paper topics:
                                                               Climate change has become one of the
                                                               hottest topics in popular news culture
                                                               today. Write a paper identifying one major
                                                               area in the world that has been affected by
                                                               deforestation or climate change.

                           Using The Lorax as an example, discuss one failed business model in
                           the 20th or 21 century in the United States. Why did the business fail?
                           Was it related to exhaustion of resources? What happened to the
                           business’ working class? What happened to its CEOs and higher-up
                           employees? One very prominent example is Enron.

                           The King’s Stilts is one of the only books written by Dr. Seuss that was written in
                           prose, rather than verse (meaning it’s not written like a poem). King Betram rules a
                           kingdom that requires a delicate balance of power and commitment. In his free time,
                           the king likes to gallivants around on red stilts. One day, the stilts are stolen and the
                           king falls into a deep depression. What perils will the town meet after the king’s stilts
                           go missing?

                           Iran is notorious for being involved in war. One of the reasons for this is because of
                           the rich natural resources it has, and because of how accessible the country is due
                           to it’s landscape. Using The Kings Stilts to support your argument, discuss why you
                           feel Iran is so vulnerable.

                                               The Butter Battle Book

                           The Butter Battle Book is about two warring cultures, the
                           Yooks and the Zooks. The warring is rooted in whether it’s
                           proper to eat your toast with the butter side of or the butter side
                           down. The land has become so divided between the Yooks
                           and the Zooks, that they have built an enormous zigzagging
                           wall between them. Eventually, a war breaks
                           out, and a race for the better defense wins.

                           The Berlin wall is an historical landmark for
                           many people worldwide. Write a paper
                           discussing the conflict between East and
                           West Berlin, and what eventually happened
                           to lead to the fall of the Berlin Wall.

                           The nuclear arms race was a very scary and very prevalent
                           theme during the Cold War. Write a paper discussing what the
                           nuclear arms race was, and why it was such a frightening time.

                                               Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose

                           Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose is a great tale about giving and giving
                           too much. Thidwick is a moose with gigantic antlers that lives in a heard
                           of 60 or more other moose. Even when food is scarce, Thidwick always
                           offers his share of food to others. He lets little creatures dwell in his
                           antlers, including a bug and 365 bees and a bobcat. When his
                                                   hospitality causes him to become completely
                                                   bogged down, Thidwick tries desperately to
                                                   escape the antlers that have become his prison.

                           with this statement? Write a paper discussing how welfare originated in
                           the United States, and what sort of impacts it has had on the United
                                        States.
