4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Lack of time: Because of strong pressure of studying, there is hardly free time for students to do anything else. We often gather and arrange materials on Sunday. Especially in the later period, because of holiday most of students are not in school. Fortunately, with the help of Wang jun , Liu na and others from Town and Talent company, we can successfully complete this activity.
Short of experience: On one hand our teacher usually are busy in teaching, so they have no chance to go outdoor with students. We think that only by elaborate plan can we get good material. On the other hand because of a poor capability of doing homepage, a little technology problem may waste many time.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Though born in Ning xia, we don't know about Hui Nationality very much, and some people think that Hui Nationality only are those who wear white caps all day and those who don't eat pig. Through this special topic research, many students got much knowledge about Hui Nationality including the origin and faith of Hui Nationality and so on. Through series of activities, for example designing proposal, connecting with people who is willing to supply material, recording and sorting contents, doing web pages, students tasted that no pain no gain.
