For my inquiry project, possible topics that I considered include: the local education system, farming, local Chinese medicine, wood carving, religious studies, and the local food. There were many other interesting topics, but they did not appeal to my personal interest as much, and I figured that since I would be studying the project for a month, I should choose something that I have a lot of interest in.

What I was looking for when choosing topics was something that I would be interested enough in to study for a whole month, and still be excited about it.

In Phase 0, I figured out what I wanted to do during the trip in Microcampus. Now, I will begin to ask questions about my chosen topic, which is the farming in Xizhou.

In Phase 1, I narrowed down my topic even further, asking questions about my inquiry project. I did some background research about my topic as well. In Phase 2, I will begin to find helful resources that will help me research my topic even further.

In Phase 3, I have listed all of the information that I have gathered both due to online research in Shanghai, and as well as the research by talking to the locals in Xizhou and the people who work at the Linden Centre. I have organized my information by different categories, and where I learned the information from.

About This Learner

I am 14 years old. I lived in Washington State, U.S.A. for 11 years. Then I moved here and have been going to SAS ever since. In my life, I have gone to 6 different schools. SAS is the longest I have been a school since I was 5. I have arrived in Xizhou and am in the process of making new experiences where I can learn about things that are outside of my comfort zone.
