I am about to embark on a 28 day journey out to Xizhou. While I am there I will choose a topic of high personal interest and do my research on this topic, this is called an inquiry project. I had a long list of topics that ranged from locals foods to small business case study. I have eventually narrowed down my choice to aspirations and dreams from kids of business owners.

I searched for different inquiry project ideas and finally made a decision to do it on Aspirations and Dreams. I plan to talk with children of business owners and ask them what their dreams are. I really wanted to see if they have different dreams from what their parents want for them, My goal is to have a conversation with  10-15 families that have either 1-2 children. With this I can get a sufficient sample size to draw some conclusions.

In Phase 3  I looked back at background research on my topic. As well as Information for local contacts. For 9 days we went out with the teachers and contacted with the local contacts to talk about our topic with them. I have written down all specific information in Phase 3 along with elaboration.  In this Phase, we are going to make a general outline on how out Final Product will look like. 

About This Learner

My name is Nolan Y. and I am an 8th grader at Shanghai American School. Going on Microcampus was a life changing experience. I was able to see rural China through the lenses of not a tourist but as a local. Microcampus had taught me so many things that I would never even imagine. I am glad I came on this 28 day trip to Xizhou to learn about parental expectations and have an experience I will hold dear to my heart for a long time.
