When I was first looking at what topics to do I choose to look at traditional Bai minority dance, ethnic minority issues, and photography. In the end I choose to study ethnic minority issues. Because learning about conflicts between different Minority groups sounds like a very interesting topic. I think this topic is important to me because the issues that the Minority groups have is very important to history. I would want to try to find some similar charastics that they have in common, like in daily life.

I also know that the minority issues somewhat started when the Mongolians took over Beijing and started to take control of China. They split the Chinese people into different groups so that it was easier to control them. When the Mongolians lost the power, the different groups just remained put.

Background Information (from Phase 1, Step 4):

My main point/thesis is the different perspective of the minority groups.

My thesis would be: in order to understand the relationship between the Bai and Hui minority one must know about the past relationship, the present relationship, and the future relationship.

About This Learner

Hi, my name is Chuli and I'm 14 years old. This will be my fourth year in Shanghai, but before I lived in Shanghai I lived in Dubai for eight years. I was really excited to be in XiZhou for Microcampus! I love learning new things and expand my prior knowledge. I learned about microcampus in 6th grade when Mr. T told us about it and from then on I really hoped I got to go. I loved to be able to do school beyond the school walls.
