Hi everyone! My inquiry question for this cycle is “What does Anime bring to us?”. I enjoy this research because I am interested in Anime, besides eSports which I wrote for last round. Basically, I didn't finish this round yet, until now, I introduced the history of Anime. Before Anime exist, due to the lower technique, they cannot make it to be a video, thus, people only have manga. Manga is said to originate from scrolls dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries.

Inquiry Question: What does ‘understanding’ mean? The project brings me many new ideas and at the same time, it changes my point of views and gives me more angles to look at the essence while doing researches. First, when I’m looking at the word ‘understanding’, I feel it is something which cannot be discussed in sections because the topic itself is so subjective. However, after reading some psychological analysis online, I changed my mind. Understanding can be explained by reason, result,...Read More...

Metamorphosis- Teaching

This is Mundia last post as a student, I hope to come back next year as a mentor. I learned so much this year from teaching at Hillcrest Middle. Just a recap of what happened. We started in September teaching the kids the basics of what Butterfly Effect is and getting to know each other. It seems like such a long time ago now that I can barely remember the details. We started with questioning and teaching them what a good question is… not just a googlable one is, as we like to call it. Then...Read More...

The lack of accessibility and responsiveness Accessibility in relationships means that "I know that I can find you when I need it, and I also know that at the time you could be obtained by me”[1][2].
