In March of 2016, a group of 12 eighth graders went on a trip to learn and grow. These students traveled to a village in China called Xizhou where they lived for a month. We were given a wide variety of topics to choose from to study during our time in Xizhou. I soon narrowed the choices down, and picked my final choice of Textile Production, specifically Bamboo Weaving. Below is my work in which I updated before and throughout the trip about my chosen topic.

In the last phase (Phase 0), I worked on selecting my final Inquiry Project topic. In this phase I gathered some background knowledge about my topic (Bamboo Weaving) and I also generated questions about my topic as well.

In Phase 1, I reflected on my knowledge of my topic of Bamboo Weaving. Also, I created my list of ten questions with possible answers to guide me through my inquiry project journey. In this phase, I will be looking for helpful resources on my inquiry project.

In Phase 0, I selected my Inquiry Project topic of Bamboo Weaving. In Phase 1, I gathered some background knowledge on my topic, and generated some questions about the topic itself. This phase is a place where I gathered knowledge that I learned both before and on the Microcampus trip.

About This Learner

My name is Maya K, and I feel lucky to say that I was part of the O.R.E.O. Microcampus Group. I have been able to learn so much during this trip from being able to live outside the bubble that is Shanghai. Not only was I able to explore about my Inquiry Project topic, I was able to make connections with locals, and learn about myself. Going to Xizhou has been an experience that I will never forget, and I hope to go back and visit soon! Microcampus has truly been One Really Excellent Opportunity.
