X Group Puxi 2020 - 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 going to be the start of preparing for the 28 days trip to Xizhou. In this start, we needed to choose an inquiry project, something we are going to study for 28 days at Xizhou. The inquiry project will be something you see interesting and want to study it for the 28 days at Xizhou. We had a huge list of topics to choose from.

On the 7th of March, 2020, I will be leaving Shanghai with my Microcampus team and will be going to Xizhou for 28 days. During this time we will be working on a project called an Inquiry Project to really be able to learn about the local culture. Before we were chosen to be a part of Microcampus we were given a list of possible choices for our Inquiry Projects. We were first asked to look at the list and pick out a few projects that really stood out to us or looked interesting.
