Phase 4: Preparing to Share: Emerging Ideas
When moving forward with my Inquiry Project and getting close to the end, I have determined the single statement which supports my entire project into a general thesis. This statement is how I can create my own Xizhou Ba Ba restaurant and the specifics of keeping the business going. To do this it is essential to mention three greatly important strands to understand my topic which are, the materials and ingredients, the cost and revenue, and most important the over-all management of this business.
After doing my research I started to think about who would my audience be and how could they interpret my information with my help. I figured out that my readers consists of many people containing my peers, family, teachers, further microcampus students and visitors/ tourists / people wanting to learn more about XiZhou and it's history on the Ba Ba. I have decided to bring a balance between hard facts and my own opinions on this work to make my project interesting to readers. Knowing that my information has also been displayed to the public, I tried to understand and look at my work from a different perspective. I wish that my information not only helps my readers, but that it is pleasant to read and learn about the Ba Ba here in Xizhou.
Understanding my written information may or may not provide the sufficient information if one wanted to choose the best Ba Ba place or finding a Ba Ba place that will accommodate their restaurant to specific customers at all times. Additional information about my topic would be the specific locations and the amounts of Ba Ba places in Xizhou. Other points contain the information about the history about different Ba Ba places and how they came to be what they are today. I focused my project mainly on a specific family and this may have not provided the information a reader would want on other specifics in different areas on the Ba Ba history.
Deciding on a final product was not easy. I needed and how I was going to present it I thought about what would be the best way to share my ideas and knowledge to my audience. My plan is to make a video podcast having a balance between my information and a way of showing my information that my audience enjoys to observe. I am thinking of using a online project builder called Prezi. I believe the layout of my project is pleasing to the eye and is original, but serious way of generating my final presentation.
