Comment: This site provides students with an opportunity to "do" history by examining
historical documents related to the murder of William Robinson. The site is
designed to entice students into history with an invitation to solve this murder
mystery. It teaches critical thinking skills, and provides students with an
opportunity to learn to think historically as they examine the collection of
archival documents provided. The site is designed to be used in conjunction
with in-class lectures/discussions and the designers provide teachers with a
guide on how to use the site which includes sample exercises. The guide can by
obtained by emailing the creators. Overall this is a wonderful site which
allows students to learn to interpret history in an engaging way.
