An inquiry project is something that we will research and work on over the course of the 28 days in Xizhou. To choose my inquiry project, I first looked through all the possible topics to find and eliminate the ones that I definitely did not want to do, and to highlight the ones that caught my attention. Eventually, I narrowed the list down to 2 topics that I would want to do a project on. Finally, after putting more thought into it and reviewing the feedback I received, I decided to do the Visitor's Guide.

After finishing Phase 0, where I decided on my topic, I will now be working on Phase 1. I have chosen to do a visitors guide about Xizhou. Phase 1 is where I will build a foundation for my project, including researching some more about my topic, and asking questions that will guide my research in Xizhou along.

Now that I have finished my background research and the making of questions in Phase 1, I will now be working on Phase 2. In this section, I will be finding useful contacts that can assist me on my project.

In Phase 3, I will be storing and interpreting information I have gained from the Internet and local contacts. I will be going out to the village to talk to locals about my topic, which will be pretty cool. Also, information from my 3-5s and background information will be available here. This is after Phase 1 and Phase 2, where I gained some basic information about my topic.

In Phase 3, I researched and collected information about my topic. I went out into the village and asked local contacts about my topic, and generally learned a lot. Now, in Phase 4, I will be thinking of ways to present my information in a unique and interesting way. I will also be making an outline for my final product so that I will have a guideline of sorts to base it on. 

About This Learner

Hi, I'm Evian and I am 13 years old. I am from Malaysia, but moved to Shanghai after my dad switched jobs. Right now, in Xizhou, I am having a great time. I have learned more about the Bai culture and the village, but I hope to deepen my understanding even more. I was in Xizhou, and it was such a great experience. I met new friends, made new connections with the locals, and generally grew as a person. Although Microcampus was already 4 weeks long, I would jump at the first chance I get to do this all over again.
