John Hooker’s Memoir, Excellent Online Source

We first have to remember that here John Hooker spells Reverend Hemenway’s name with an “ing” version of his name. There was a source at the State Library that used that spelling, but for the most part we have seen the “en” version. That said, we have to be meticulous and diligent and check both versions when we do specific searches for Hemenway’s materials. Screen Shot 2016-02-18 at 11.18.03 AM.png

It is interesting how Hooker’s memoir gives the Flora case its own chapter, even though it is only three pages long. What is the connotation of that narrative organization? Upon further research, it is also important to note that John Hooker does not have a proper page on Wikipedia. Can we take the time to share what we learn there and show how we learned it? To what other pages on Wikipedia should we connect John Hooker’s page? Why is that a great laboratory for project-based learning?  How might such an enterprize increase our academic network? Does anyone have an account?
