I was going through my normal day in Shanghai. I was covered up with assignments and assessments, until the group from the previous Microcampus trip group came back. I was instantly impressed by the work that they were able to accomplish, and I decided to join the trip for Microcampus. Microcampus is a trip led by Mr. Tafel, which leads to Shanghai.

In Phase 0, our process was to generate questions to choose a topic we are going to inquire in our local community, and decide on our final topic. Our topic is what we will be learning in Xizhou for a week, where as our final product will be a collection of interaction with locals and interviews. Using these steps, I decided that my topic is Food & Snacks in Xizhou.

In the second phase of the Microcampus process, I will be finding helpful resources in order to enrich my time in Xizhou. Phase 1 was a stage to come up with essential questions which are used to be the backbone of the research. In order to find helpful sources for research, I had to use keywords in order to specify my research spectrum. First of all, I used Yunnan.

In the third phase of the stages of Microcampus, I will be conducting a research process about the cuisine in Xizhou. As a recap, Phase 0 was the stage where I decided on a topic, using questions that specified between many other topics. Using these questions, I finally decided that Cuisine will be my topic.

In this Phase of Work, I will be developing the format of the final output that I will publish. In the previous phases, Phase 0 was where I chose my topic to study in Xizhou during my time in Shanghai. In the next Phase, I came up with several questions that will help me guide my learning here.

About This Learner

Hello! My name is SeYoung. I am currently 13, and I came back from Xizhou. I have lived in China for 7 years. I came to Guangzhou when I was 7, which I lived there for a year. After that, I lived in Beijing for three years and Shanghai since fifth grade. I decided to join Microcampus because I think that only learning in Shanghai is different from actually interacting with the locals. It was so amazing to be in Xizhou, and I wish I could go back in time to visit again!
