Superior - Inquiry Project

What is an Inquiry Project?

All Microcampus students spend a significant amount of time each week devoted to investigating a topic of high personal interest that relates to the Xizhou area. Students actively seek and depend upon the wisdom of the people living in and around Xizhou to support their active investigation into their chosen area of interest.

During their exploration of one of the wide range of possible topics, students will be supported by a framework for inquiry that features the following four main phases:
    1) Posing Real Questions
    2) Finding Resources
    3) Interpreting Information
    4) Reporting Findings
The process is designed to be cyclical in nature, however, and will involve plenty of reflection, questioning, and reframing their research as new information is found. All student work will be made public during the research process online; it is hoped that readers will provide feedback to students during the research process and follow along as the students report their learning.

Finding a suitable Inquiry Project that interests us will be very important because we will asking villagers about our inquiry project for 28 days in a village called Xizhou. The quality and quantity of the preparation phase of our inquiry project will effect how much we learn when we reach to Xizhou. The inquiry project is self picked and is highly run by our own interests. We were provided with a list of topics and we selected our top three topics.
