This is the start of a significant learning journey, which will include uncomfortableness, risks, and mistakes. I, along with a few other students, will be spending 28 days in a village in Yunnan researching on a topic that I am passionate towards. As the initial section of planning, we were presented with a list of provided inquiry projects that we are expected to expand and research upon during our stay at Xizhou. I scrolled through the ideas, stopping at those that seemed interesting and noting it down, before continuing down the list.

Back in Phase 1, I have established my Big Questions to narrow down my chosen topic. Now, in Phase 2, I will be finding useful resources to further deepen my understanding of my topic; namely, finding and contacting experts for feedback and comments.

In Phase 0, I have narrowed a series of inquiry topics down to one (or, in my case, two merged together), and have elaborated upon my prior knowledge on the subject. In Phase 1, I will complete sufficient background research on my topic to benefit my knowledge when I travel to Xizhou, and this is what Phase 3 will include.

About This Learner

Hi! My name is Angela and I am a student from Shanghai American School. I was a part of the Superior Microcampus group, and staying at Xizhou for the all of March in 2017 was something I will never forget. It was one of the most difficult, frustrating, uncomfortable, and unforgettable opportunities I will ever have the honor of experiencing. I had learned so much values and knowledge over the course of those 28 days, and these lessons are what I will be carrying with me for the years to come.
