What is a HOT Log?

HOTLogHot Log (Higher Order Thinking).

One way to describe this Project Based Learning writing assignment is to think of this task as an intellectual reflection on your next step towards our goal of finding UGRR evidence in West Suffield or the design thinking process of our commemorative stone in the northwest section of the cemetery.

In 500 words, make a claim about the necessity to explore one, specific resource (article, book, periodical, web site, historical society, historian (even better if we can Skype him/her}, historical library [I am a member of The Connecticut Historical Society), movie, technology or other research tool, learning lens, such as Place Based Learning, etc). Your short paper will evaluate the potential importance of this source for our investigation as well as building upon our research story.

A range: lucid, logical, sequential, includes a valuable source or resource. Well-written following rules of Standard English. 500 words.
