In March 2018, a group of 16 SAS puxi 8th grade students will go to Xizhou for 28 days to learn and grow as a person. In Xizhou we will each investigate a topic of might interest to us. To prepare for Phase 0 of Microcampus, Mr. T gave us a list of about 40 possible inquiry project topics. Our job was to narrow down the list and pick our top three topics. With lots of help from Mr. T we each had to choose one inquiry topic. The final topic that I chose was textile production.

In Phase 0 I have narrowed down a list of possible topics and I have chosen my final inquiry topic - bamboo weaving. Now in Phase 1, I will be researching background information about my topic and I will be asking important questions that I will answer in Xizhou.

What do I already know (or think I know) about this topic?

In Phase 1 I did some background research and asked 10 big questions about bamboo weaving that I will try to answer when working on my project in Xizhou. In this phase, I will be finding helpful resources for my inquiry project.

About This Learner

Hi! My name is Sarah, I am 14 years old. This is my 11th year at SAS Puxi. I love playing sports, being outside, hanging out with friends, and reading. Microcampus has been an incredible life-changing experience that I will forever remember. I have met so many people in Xizhou who have impacted me greatly. I am so thankful that I got the opportunity to come to Xizhou for 28 days to experience China outside of the "bubble." Microcampus has taught me more than I could have ever imagined and I will forever remember this experience.
