Microcampus is roughly one month away. Within the space of those 28 days, we will be researching specific topics concerning the village and its surroundings. In order to prepare for our Inquiry Projects, we were asked to select several topics (1-3) and write about why we selected them, what questions we might ask about them, etc. The long list of topics given to us contained many different potential topics, several of which I was interested in.

After Phase 1, in which I posed questions in order to guide my investigation into the local landforms and geology at XiZhou, I have moved onto Phase 2. The purpose of Phase 2 will be to find helpful resources in order to help my Inquiry Project research.

After my Phase Three, where I gathered information from local sources, I have moved on to Phase Four, where all the information that I gathered will be organized into a format that I can present, incorporating experiences, connections, feelings, and information.
