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.

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

Hi, I'm Shirley X. and I was part of the 2018 Voyagers Group. I am from the United States but moved here to Shanghai in the sixth grade. After returning from Microcampus, I feel as though the experience has shaped and changed me in so many different aspects. The month long journey has helped me grow and I have learned so many lessons from the locals, the teachers, as well as my peers and hope to be able to return to the sensational town and community of Xizhou one day. After this, I will continue to apply everything I have learned to my life and onwards.
