2. Description of "Our Community"
Zhangyi Middle School is located 38 km to the southwest Yuanzhou
District in the Guyuan City of Ningxia, where conditions are
rough, economic development is slow and natural calamity is
incessant and numerous. It is one of Guyuan's poorest villages.
It's at boundary of Yuanzhou District, Longde County and Xiji
County, with Liupan Mountain in the east, Jiangtaibao in the
west, Haizixia in the south, and Xumi Mountain in the north.
The traffic here is convenient (include Gujiang and Longzhang
Highway)and natural environment is beautiful. Most people
live on agriculture.
III. Summary of Our Project
This year is the 70th anniversary of the Long March. In our
interview, we get to know that the Red Army ever passed through
our village. What's more, Chairman Mao stayed at Yanguan in
Zhangyi County for one night and wrote down the famous poem
"Mount Liupan (Qingpingle-Liupan Mountain)". As
Zhangyiness, we feel quite proud. At the same time, we feel
ashamed because we might not know this history in our lifetime
without our interview. In our research, we are clear about
the route map of crossing Liupan Mountain and the Long March
spirit. In our web site, we introduce the brief history of
the Red Armies, our interview record, pictures and other relevant
stories. It's hard for us to make web pages as we have no
experience. With the help of teachers and staff in TTT, we
finish it in time. Thanks to this activity, we learn a lot
of knowledge and feel the Long March spirit.
IV. Our Computer/Internet Access
We have only one computer connected with internet in campus;
however, we get much help from our teachers and people in
V. Problems We Had to Overcome
1. This is our first time to participate in the international
competition, we are lack of experience. With the help of TTT
staff, we finish our project on time.
2. we waste too much time on setting our project.
3. It takes us a lot of time to search information on the
internet, because our computer skills is not good. With the
help of teachers and students, we overcome this problem.
4. problems in interview
The tight budget hardly supports us in the research. What
we can do is to save money on tickets and traffic. It was
snowing in our interview. Our teacher-Mr. Xie fell down several
times when taking pictures. So were my students. We always
have lunch at two or three o'clock, which causes stomach.
5. weaknesses in translation
Because our English level is limited, we always have problems
in translation. Thanks to TTT staff, they help us to make
web site in English version. We express our sincere acknowledgement
6. our project sound bite
We learn many things in participating in the Cyber Fair. It's
our first time to communicate on the internet, do interview,
visit the Long March site, and make web site. We have learnt
a lot about communication with others. Although the process
of research is harsh, we know that there is no harvest without
sowing. The sweet fruit comes only with hard work. We have
also gained the valuable experiences of interacting with others;
this ability will be a long-life benefit for us. By working
together on the project, we have a fresh knowledge about ourselves.
We not only see the merits of others, but also realize the
strength of ourselves.
VI. Project elements
Making the summary of our project is a test of our comprehensive
quality. As our subject is the Red Armies, we search information
about its history, geography, art, culture and other information.
In our research, we have gained the valuable experiences of
interacting with others. We would like to thank all the villagers,
parents, schoolmates and teachers who help link interviewees
and give us a lot of support and cooperation. Without them
we can not successfully finish the project.

schoolmates and other people. With the help of students' union,
we organize the "knowledge competition of the Red Armies",
make newspapers, draw pictures and make web sites.
Ⅸ. The impact of our project
We get more exact information about Liupan Mountain. Standing
on the top of this mountain, you can see the beautiful scenery
in the surrounding, like the feeling on Mount Tai. We hope
our website to promote local tourism. We believe that "to
preserve means victory". As long as we work hard and
cooperate, we can realize our goal.

All the word material comes from our interview or edition
of relevant books and websites. The pictures are taken by
XI. Our gains

about the Red Armies and Liupan Mountain. Although we meet
much difficulty in interview, we overcome them with the help
of teachers and staff of TTT. We learn to cooperate with others.
Our computer skills improve a lot.
