Microcampus is an educational field trip where students are chosen to go to a 28 day adventure to XiZhou, the village with the true face of China outside the bubble. And this page, phase 0, is the place I decided on the topic of my inquiry project, the month long project that we are mainly going to be working on in XiZhou, from a list of numerous titles. Following a number of steps, I narrowed these topics down to three, and finally decided on one that made me passionate about the most.
On the previous page, Phase 0, I chose one specific topic to work on for my Inquiry project, which for me is the photography of local food/cuisine. Now on this page, Phase 1, I am going to be researching for background information that goes with my Inquiry project topic. I will be also posing big questions for me to solve out in XiZhou and to work as the backbone of my project.
In order to obtain my sources for the research in Phase 1, I mainly used the words 'Yunnan Cuisine' and 'Food Photography Techniques.' After some research, I found out that just typing in 'XiZhou Cuisine' did not help much because the place was a bit too minor; after all it is a small village.
On this page, Phase 3, I will be doing all my research for my Inquiry project both before and during the microcampus trip. Previously, I have completed Phase 0 and Phase 1, in which I decided on my Inquiry project topic, and posed some questions that expanded on it.
I really had a marvellous time at XiZhou, I experienced so many thing that I would never have been able to back in Shanghai. I miss the beautiful fields and the nice villagers here. I really hope I can go back there sometime.
