Historical Scene Investigation (HSI)

 

Definition

The Historical Scene Investigation (HSI) project is a Web site designed for teachers and students to investigate historical topics using selected primary and secondary sources.

 

Features

The HSI project provides rich cases related to American history (e.g., the Boston Massacre) that are still debated by historians.  Students act as "detectives" and explore a collection of historical documents and a "detective’s log" that engages them in historical inquiry.
