Hi From School

Hi Madeleine,  Really proud of your participation in the microcampus project!  Look forward to following your adventure.  Mr. Latzke

I am looking forward to

I am looking forward to seeing some cool stuff from you and all the other lucky students. Learn a lot! Bring back lots to share. The 7th graders are watching with eager eyes.

Hello, I'm Madeleine. I was in the pilot Microcampus program in 2012. In Xizhou, I researched Bai Minority Clothing because of my interest in the patterns and embroidery on Bai clothing. Though a seemingly lackluster topic, I found that my project became less and less about clothing, and more about the preservation of traditions in a village that is becoming more and more exposed to the world outside of the valley. I welcome you to take a look at my project, and see how my ideas and thoughts had developed over the course of a month!
