I am starting this Phase before our trip to Microcampus, so that when I get to Microcampus, I will be prepared and ready for the awesome trip! In the beginning, I looked at the long list of inquiry projects, and tried to pick some that sounded interesting to me. I knew that I would have to work on this project for a whole month in Xizhou for our Microcampus trip. It would have to fulfill my interest, and also have an educational value. Some questions I had to keep in mind while picking the topics were: 

- What made you investigate this topic?

In Phase 0, I had decided my topic of interest, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), for this Microcampus trip, after ruling out other possible topic choices. Now, in Phase 1, I will have to start gathering knowledge and research questions about this topic, to help me prepare for my stay at Xizhou. We have not yet traveled to Xizhou yet, but will go very soon!

In Phase 1, I had to do some basic research on my topic, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I also had to come up with 10 big questions that I will have to research and answer in Xizhou. Now, in Phase 2, I have to state/find some helpful resources that can help me on my trip in Xizhou. Half of Phase 2 was done in Shanghai, while the other half (starting from "Three-to-Fives") was done in Xizhou!

Back in Phase 2, I located local contacts I could interview through my Three-to-Five interviews with the Linden Center staff. Now in Phase 3, this is my main research page, with background info from online resources, info from the Three-to-Five interviews, interviews from local contacts, and the answering of my Big Questions.

Before beginning to plan my final product of Phase 5, I first looked at a couple of Microcampus Alumni's Final Products. What I saw was quite amazing, and I felt the products were all really well thought out, and nice. First, I looked at Gayatri B's product on small businesses in Xizhou. Hers was a Power Point, where she talked about her topic.

About This Learner

Hey my name is Shirley, I am a student from SAS Pudong. I used to live in Minnesota, USA, then moved to Suzhou, China, and finally to Shanghai. I am Chinese American, with black hair, brown eyes, at the age of 13. I like to make any kind of arts and crafts, be crazy with my BFFs, and read fanfiction. I also play piano as a hobby. I may seem quiet at first, but if you get to know me really really well I start to talk a lot. I am a survivor of the Fearless Microcampus group! I am glad that I experienced this trip, because I grew a lot as a person, and I learned a lot of life lessons as well. I hope the groups coming later will enjoy this experience as much as I did, and that they will be nice to Mr. T and Ms. Mai! Now, I shall have fun being an Alumni.
