28 days, 16 eighth graders, and 1 common goal, to learn about the culture and history of Xizhou. Out of a long list of inquiry topics, all sixteen of us chose one topic we were interested in. When I looked through the inquiry topic list, I continuously asked myself three questions: Am I actively engaged/connected with this topic? (Why?) What is the purpose of learning this topic? What would be the ending product of the learning and research?
In Phase 1, after I did some background research, I developed ten major questions surrounding my inquiry project, weather of Xizhou. Right now in Phase 2, I will be reflecting back on my research and sources and I will be searching for useful resources that might help me answer my ten major questions or new questions that were developed.
