When I was first informed that I was going to go to Mircocampus, my mind went crazy. Microcampus is when a group of 16 students go to the village of Xizhou for 28 days! When I got the email showing my group, I was so even happier. Microcampus, to me, is a once in a life time chance, and I have been blessed to go. Our first homework was to pick two to three different possiblbe topics for our inquiry project focus. I had to look through a list of many different choices.

Phase 0 was all about narrowing down to one topic. The topic I picked was Bai Minority Music. The next step in my project was phase 1, which is all about asking questions that will help in the interviews, and I also answered what I know, what I have learned, and what do I want to learn.

Phase 1 was all about creating questions and possible answers. Phase 2 is all about finding some really helpful resources that could help solve those questions that I have created. With all the resources, my mind will be at peace from all those questions. My goal is to find very helpful resources that will allow me to answer those questions and maybe other things that I did not think about.

From Phase 2, I had to create questions allowing me to extend in my research. Phase 3 is all about answering those questions and creating the path I want to talk to go to my final product.

About This Learner

Hi. My name is Daniel S. I am 14 years old. I was born in Quito, Ecuador, where I lived for 3 years, then the United States for 9 years, and China for one year. There are four people in my family. My father, mother, brother, and I. I can fluently speak Spanish and English, but I am learning Chinese. I have been blessed with this amazing opportunity to go on this wonderful trip of Microcampus. Like Mr. Tafel has said before, this is the perfect opportunity to leave the Pudong "bubble." I had so much fun in XIzhou. The people here are so kind and just great. I had so much fun learning a lot about Bai Minority Music.
