Voyagers Puxi March 2018 - 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.

This is currently Phase 1, where I will be focusing on plants and insect life. Back in Phase 0, I had carefully chosen my topic that I will be working with for a month. My plan is to investigate information about the environment and insects that lived with the villagers in Yunnan Province. The purpose of this plan and the topic is to learn about the people in China and how they rely on the environment to form their village and their culture.
