The Historical Scene Investigation (HSI) project (http://www.hsionline.org) stimulates historical inquiry by providing teachers with a way to explore technology-rich curricular resources available in the form of self-contained document-based “cases.” Using the metaphor of a crime scene investigation, HSI exercises guide students in analyzing selected primary source documents to solve a historical problem or question. Currently, our site features cases developed around events commonly included in K-12 American history curricula, including the Settlement of Jamestown, the Boston Massacre, and the Battle of Lexington Green, as well as explorations into aspects of American cultural history through a case relating to runaway slaves and another to Elvis Presley.
