When I was told I was about to spend 28 days in a village within Xizhou to research a topic we were highly interested in, I was speechless. I never really had a strong interest in one particular topic, therefore, the list of topics I could research was huge. I went to my brother (Jeffrey) who had gone on the Microcampus trip before and received some advice on choosing my topic. His suggestions were to find a topic that I was not acquainted.

In this Phase, I will begin to figure out the what parts of my topic, which can be found here in Phase 0, I really want to explore. This will be accomplished by coming up with questions that I will want to focus on when I go to Xizhou.

In Phase 2, I will be looking for more sources of information that can push my inquiry project even further. I finished Phase 0 earlier where I chose my inquiry project's topic while in Phase 1 I have come up with the questions that would guide my project throughout Microcampus.

In Phase 3, I will be accumulating all of my research in here before and during my Xizhou trip. Previously in Phase 0, I have chosen my topic while in Phase 1 I have activated prior knowledge and came up with questions that will guide my research.

This is Phase 4, where I will begin to develop a possible outline for my upcoming inquiry project. Before this, I had already completed a long and complicated process to arrive at this point. First, I had completed Phase 0, where I considered on many topics and eventually came to a final decision.

About This Learner

After Microcampus, my life has been greatly affected by the new and different experiences that were offered during Microcampus. From being able to work efficiently and effectively to having meaningful conversations with (at first) strangers around me. I know understand the difference between "giving" and "trading" and the awareness of impact. How that perhaps people in need aren't necessarily always wanting gifts, but instead a trade, a bond, an understanding between two drastically different people. I also realized how much could be gained from just viewing the world around us and not just our smartphones and computers. For once, I noticed how the buildings were set up in a certain way or how some certain art was covered, I feel this type of education has been more effective than any other program I have ever tried out.
