I still remember the time when Mr. Tafel announced to our Grade 6 Science class that he was going to be off-campus for a month. He had asked me and my friends (on several occasions) whether we were going to sign up for Microcampus. Look at me now! I would be in Xizhou this time next month.

In Phase 1, I did some general research and wrote down some questions that will be the overall framework of my inquiry project. In this phase, I will be finding helpful resources to help me answer some of these big questions that I have asked.  By the end of this phase, I, hopefully, will be able to come up with more questions to narrow down my field of research for my topic.

The purpose of this phase is to gather information until I am fully prepared to do the final phase of the project. At this point of time, I will be interviewing many of my local sources that were recommended to me during my 3-5's in Phase 2

About This Learner

I am currently thirteen years old and am from Fremont, California. I have lived in Shanghai for nearly ten years now, and since I heard about this Microcampus program, I was set on signing up as soon as I became an eighth grader––for the sake of the learning experience and close interaction with the locals. Initially, I had based my inquiry project on tea processing and its evolution in Xizhou, though it had shifted to finding more information on tea ceremonies.
