Microcampus is a good experience and opportunity. It is a month long trip where 16 students from the SAS Puxi and Pudong campuses live in for a month in Xizhou around the local people. Eight people from each campus were picked to go as a mixed trip. Xizhou is a small town next to Dali. Xizhou is a less crowded place with a lot less tourists, what a real countryside is like. It has glorious culture and there are still some historical crafts the Bai minority has made. Going to Microcampus was a decision I made based on considering how it would benefit me.

In Phase 0, I have picked out one topic that I am most interested in and have started researching about it. In this section which is Phase 1, I am going to research my topic even more. I am going to decide what I need to know before I go to Xizhou. I will come up with questions that I will find the answers to once I arrive at Xizhou.

In Phase 1, I completed my list of big questions that will help with my interview. It allows me to be prepared when I am in Xizhou and ready to interview my contacts. In phase 2, I will be find helpful resources that will allow me to get facts about my topic.

To find information online, I looked for articles. I used keywords to find useful sources. The keywords I used were Bai people activities, Xizhou architecture and crafts, Xizhou children, and Bai minority children.
