History was always historic for many reasons. Like the fact that it will never be forgotten or left out. History is the study of the human past, with special attention to the written record. Scholars who write about history are called historians. It is a field of research which uses a narrative to examine and analyse the sequence of events, and it often attempts to investigate objectively the patterns of cause and effect that determine events. Historians debate the nature of history and the lessons history teaches. A famous quote by the philosopher George Santayana has it that "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." The stories common to a particular culture, but not supported by external sources (such as the legends surrounding King Arthur) are usually classified as cultural heritage rather than the "disinterested investigation" needed by the discipline of history.
The assignment given was to create a PowerPoint on a certain country of our choice and answer a series of questions that were given. The answers were put into the Power Point. The skills that were used in this were the ability to understand facts about countries and follow directions. I do agree with the grade I was given. I tried, but I also did my project in the course of an hour whereas everyone else received two days to do their’s. But I do think that I did a pretty good job, and my 93 was well deserved. I think next time; I’ll definitely take more time and focus more on my project and putting more “umph” into it.
