Early on in 2017, September, we were first introduced to a twenty-eight day learning experience that took place in the village of Xizhou, called Microcampus, in which a select 16 will be chosen to attend. In time, I found myself to be one of those 16, and things were set in motion quickly. A long list of topic descriptors were available, with over 30 ideas which did not even limit your own personal proposals. Out of the thirty we had to reduce the the topics down to just a few, from the comments I was given by Mr. T, as well as my peers.

Back in Phase 0, I introduced the topic I would be researching during the Microcampus trip, Local Businesses. Now, in Phase 1, I will be presenting questions about this topic as well as discussing my current knowledge about these businesses.

Previously, in Phase 1, I proposed some questions that I wished to further continue my research with in Xizhou. Now, in Phase 2, I will be reaching out to experts in the business field, as well as discussing about the sources that I had looked into.

When researching about businesses, I had to recount what exactly it was that prompted me to choose this topic.

In Phase 1, I proposed some questions and discussed my background knowledge about Local Businesses. But before that, I first completed Phase 0. During that phase, I walked through what steps I took in order find out which topic I was most interested in, and why. Now, in this phase, I will be conducting and documenting research about this subject.

About This Learner

Hello, I am a thirteen year old in eight gold. I have lived in Shanghai for 3 years (this being my third) and before that, I lived in California for all my years up until middle school. Over the course of this trip, I would like to be able to observe and compare the way people in the Yunnan area live compared to Shanghai. I am often described as weird with a "special" sense of humor. On the other hand, my friends depict me as a calm, respectable, and righteous person. I am very grateful to be a part of such a unique experience this year and hope to be able learn and grow.
