In this Julius Caesar CSI investigation, students take on the role of an investigator as they read testimony (compiled from primary and secondary evidence) related to Caesar's assassination. Ultimately, students seek to understand why Caesar was killed and who may have played a role. Students hear and learn from Cleopatra, Nicolaus of Damascus, Suetonius, Octavian, Mark Antony, Marcus Brutus, Sulla, and others. Students investigate their words and study their relationship to Caesar to gather details surrounding this moment in history. To conclude, students complete a short writing assignment where they use what they have learned to answer two overarching questions.
