For this Microcampus trip, we are required to pick an inquiry project that interests us and write and study it. After choosing a topic we want, we will be studying and learning this topic for 28 days. We had to pick from this long list of projects we could do, I think it was pretty hard narrowing it down to just 3 topics. All of the topics were very interesting but I could only choose a limited amount of them. I had to read each of the projects information and had to think about which topic I would want to learn for 28 days.

In Phase 0, I was required to look through and read about many topics and pick one at the end that I will research about, the one I picked was 'Economics Case Study'. In Phase 1, I will be giving out more information about my topic. Also, I will be providing questions that might make the reader curious about this topic.

Previously in Phase 1, I have worked on thinking about some important questions that are related to my topic. Now in Phase 2, I will be starting to find some helpful resources that will relate to my topic. Some resources could include asking some locals or also emailing some experts.

I used some key phrases to help me do some background research in Phase 1. Below are some of phrases that I used.

In the previous Phase that I have worked on which is Phase 3, I have researched and gathered information about my topic. Before I came to Xizhou, I gathered some information from online sources that are relevant to my topic. Since I am in Xizhou right now, I have started to get more valid information from the local contacts here in Xizhou. Now that I have completed my Phase 3, I will be starting to work on Phase 4.
