The Main Purpose of this ePortfolio:
There are many different aspects within the broad topic of History. When doing History, one is able to conclude that History isn’t just about the facts and information, but also the interpretations of others. Throughout my ePortfolio I will show that this statement is true with the use of my reading logs from various topics discussed in the class that I found interesting, my research from my topic of choice; The Jesuit Relations, other reflections on the past, as well as other topics I have learned throughout the course.
