Green Eggs and Ham

Lane Butler

"I do not like them in a box. I do not like them with a fox. I do not like them in a house. I do not like them with a mouse. I do not like them here or there. I do not like them anywhere. I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-Am." He continues to say he doesn't like green eggs and ham although he has never tried them. Sometimes people don't want to try new things because they are afraid or don't know what it will be like or what will happen. He very well may not like green eggs and ham, but then again he may. This can be associated with many other things in life such as trying new activities, making new friends, and moving to different places.

"Sam! If you will let me be, I will try them. You will see." Sam-I-Am's persistence throughout the story has finally made him try green eggs and ham. It seemed nearly impossible to get him to try due to his stubbornness but eventually he managed to get him to try them. This shows how persistence and determination can allow someone to reach their goals. Sam-I-Am failed many times trying to get him to try green eggs and ham but he never gave up. Due his continuous effort, he finally got him to try green eggs and ham. This can be associated with many more things in life. If you fail a test or don't make a team the first but you try and try you can work your way to succeed next time. This story shows a perfect example of why you should never give up on anything no matter how hard it may seem.

"Say! I like green eggs and ham! I do! I like them. Sam-I-Am!" He was very hesitant about trying the green eggs and ham because he had never had them before but that didn't keep Sam-I-Am from attempting to get him to try. Finally Sam-I-Am got him to try green eggs and ham and he loved it. This shows that just because you've never done something or it is different, it doesn't always make it bad.

Summary

This story can be used for much more than just to entertain someone. It shows that sometimes when you try new things, you actually really like them. This can be used for people as well. If there's a new student and nobody really talks to him, you could go and make friends with him and they might turn out to be really fun after all. Sam-I-Am tried and tried to get him to try green eggs and ham but he wouldn't. He finally managed to get him to try them and he loved them. This shows that sometimes the best things are different.

The moral of this story is to never judge a book by it's cover. If you always do that, you'll never know what you're missing. Often times the best things are different like shown in the story. He didn't want to try green eggs and ham because they were different and he didn't like the way they looked, but eventually he tried them and he loved them very much.

Question asked concerning the implications made

One question asked that would probe implications and the consequences was "What do you think would've happened in the character's life if he never tried green eggs and ham?" If he wouldn't have tried the green eggs and ham I believe that he would never want to try new things throughout his life. He will always stick with the norm and never broaden his experiences or acceptability. He will never want to try and accept new things because he will always be hesitant in this field. Due to him eventually trying green eggs and ham, he learned that he actually really liked them and that new things are not always bad. I believe that he will not be as hesitant to try new things in the future.

I agree with your implications and they relate very well to life.

I like your implications because if you never try anything new, you would only do a few things in life and it would be the same things over and over again.

In life, sometimes I have a bad attitude towards things, and I think everybody does. I think if you approach something with a good attitude, you will enjoy it more. Sometimes, you will really like things that you don't think you would like at first. Maybe a sport you try, you don't think you will like, but then when you try it out, you think it is really great, and are glad you tried it, because without trying it you would've never known it was so much fun!!!!!

Your implications are awesome I agree with you're implications and you explained them very good. I relate to your implication don't judge a book by its cover because I do this a lot when I eat food that looks nasty, I just say its nasty because it looks nasty sometimes I haven't even tried it before but still say its nasty.

I think that the discussions we are having relate to a socratic seminar.

This relates to everyone's life because most people don't like trying new things because they look may look nasty but it turns out it was good.

I like your implications, because if you never try new things, you never will change.
