This Phase 0 is a starting point for me to start narrowing down my thoughts to choose a topic that I will be investigating for 28 days in Xizhou. I was provided with a tremendous amount of choices related to the village we were going to. These potential topics varied from local history to business running and crafting. Some of the topics that caught my eyes were local arts, tea, legends, Bai language, farming, transportation, architecture, religious studies, local cooking, and End-of-Life rituals.

Previously in Phase 0, I came up with a brief topic I would like to focus on in Xizhou. This is Phase 1 where I will pose real questions to guide me through my project and build background knowledge on my topic which is religions in Xizhou and how they differentiate the locals.

In Phase 1, I created 10 big questions I will attempt to answer during my trip to Xizhou. On this Phase, I will be looking for resources that could lead me to some answers and more questions.

Before Phase 3, I have chosen my topic, which is religions in Xizhou, in Phase 0, and came up with questions that would guide me through my project in Phase 1. In this Phase, I will learn facts by doing background research about my chosen topic to help with my understanding of it.
