Microcampus is when a group of kids go out into the world, more specifically a rural village in Yunnan, and learn about the culture, history, and so on. We will be completing normal school work, but in addition to that we will be doing inquiry projects. These are research projects all about the village that we will be living in. From ancient history and folklore to dancing and photography, there were lots and lots of topics to chose from.

This is Phase 1 in the Microcampus inquiry project but it is actually the second Phase. The first Phase was Phase 0 and during it I have chosen the topic through an elimination process and narrowing down to Wall Propaganda. I have decided to branch off from Propaganda and focus on Wall Charts from the Great Leap Forward. I plan for this topic to be investigating Wall Charts and interviewing people who were alive in this time period.

This is the beginnings of Phase 2, the third step in the Microcampus inquiry work. The phases completed before this were Phase 0, Phase 1, and a little of Phase 3. While researching for Phase 3, I used certain keywords in a web search or in the library to find exactly what I need.

This is Phase 3 of my inquiry project. In Phase 0, I chose a topic to focus on while living in Yunnan providence. After an elimination process, I narrowed it down to Wall Charts and Wall Propaganda. I started to dive into what this is about and why this happened in Phase 1.

Phase 4 is writing an outline of the final project. My topic is Wall Propaganda, but I have branched out to Wall Charts, Charts written between The Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revalution. In Phase 3 I went out into Xizhou and researched the charts and interviewed people about it.

About This Learner

My name is Sam from Shanghai American School, from Puxi. I was in the Kryptonite group and was in Xizhou Microcampus in March 2015. It was a very fun and exciting experience, almost a bit frightening the amount of responsibility. I was working on Wall Propaganda for my inquiry project and have finished.
