Day 22: Education
Today my service learning group and I went to Mr. Yang, the Sifangjie antique dealer's house and interviewed his uncle. At first, the answeres were awkward and didn't give too much insight on what we were looking for. However, as the conversation progressed, he gradually opened up and gave us deeper, and deeper understandings of his role as a teacher, education in Xizhou, and how the way the villagers care so much about education really makes him love Xizhou. I think that we have found an amazing partner, and our group has already decided to focus in the topic of education in Xizhou.
For Inquiry projects, I held a long conversation with Mr. T today over lunch. I gave him my thoughts on how I should proceed with the project, and he gave his input. Now I have a better understanding of what to do, and how I can effectively create large impact on the viewers. I hope that I'll be able to finish this, but that means I need to get to work right away! For those of you wondering what it may be about, the title image is a small piece of what I've done.
