What is a CSI? Simple answer: it is a teacher-created DBQ (sort of) that walks the students through a very specific period or event in history; however, instead of asking the students to respond to a few questions per document, students are asked to pull relevant and important information from each document, and then make connections. In other words, it is much, much more than a simple and old-fashion DBQ. It requires critical thinking and group participation (can be completed indiv.). Most importantly, it is a Common Core-friendly activity. Great activity for those APPR's!!!
