Beginning on January 25, I will be spending 28 days in a village located in the Yunnan province of South China researching a topic that is of interest to me about the village. I had a large variety of topics to choose from, and I narrowed my choices based on what most interests me, and the feedback I received on my exploration of the topics. As I began my project, I had one main question to help me as I look at possible topics.

In Phase 1 I will begin researching and developing questions about my topic, which I have previously chosen in Phase 0. These questions are the beginning of my project, and lead to what I will be doing in the Village.

In Phase 1I began developing questions to ask about my topic, and now in Phase 2 I will be finding resources to help me answer these questions, and possibly develop new ones.

In Phase 3 I will be doing background research and interactive research in the village about my topic. I will be using the resources I found in Phase 2 to start asking questions and building knowledge. This is the information that I include in my final product, and it will take me in many different paths depending on the questions I ask and the answers I receive. This is where the real learning begins.

This is Phase 4, where I will be using all the information I have gathered to create an outline and plan for my final project. I have had many interviews and experiences with locals, and all this information is now stored in Phase 3
