Phase 4: Preparing to Share: Emerging Ideas

Updated 3 years 4 months ago

In Phase 3, I collected and interpreted information. This is Phase 4, where I will be planning my final project. To gain a better understanding of what a final project would look like, I looked at Cassandra M's, Gayatri B's, Rory W's, and Kate J's projects. These projects were all very different and made me think of the different ways I could present what I've learned. Next, I thought about who my audience would be. Anyone can come to this website and follow my Microcampus experience, so the audience may not be what I expect, but I think that friends, family, and teachers will look at my Inquiry projects. I also think future Microcampus students will be the most likely to look at my Inquiry Project, since this is what I did while going through the process. The main point that I hope to share with my audience is my journey and how my opinion towards what happened post-Liberation changed while I was here (my opinion beforehand, my first impression, and what I believe now). For my final project, I plan on making a video using iMovie, including voiceovers and images. 

Outline:

I. Intro

  • Background on Microcampus (what we do, why we came, etc.)
  • Thesis

II. What I Thought Before

  • My opinion before arriving in Xizhou
  • What may have influenced/changed my opinion

III. My First Impressions

  • My opinion when I had first arrived
  • What may have influenced/changed my opinion

IV. What I Think Now

  • My opinion now that I am nearing the end of the Microcampus trip
  • What may have influenced/changed my opinion

V. Reflection and Conclusion

Next I will be working on my final project.

Hey! I'm Eirean and I just turned 13 last November. I was born in Hong Kong and lived in Guangzhou until I was 7 years old. I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio where I lived for five years before moving to Shanghai. This is my first year in SAS and so far it's been pretty great. I have five people in my family: my mom, dad, older sister, older brother, and I. I love music, books, food, and sleep. I was so lucky to live in Xizhou, even if it was only for a month. It was a lovely place with spectacular scenery and wonderful people. I don't think I could ever forget the things I experienced or the people I met while living in there. I honestly hope that I left a positive impact on Xizhou, because Xizhou definitely left a positive impact on me.
