4. Problems We Had To Overcome
At first, the schedule is tight; the students get up 6:50 every morning and take a break after 21 o'clock in the winter. So they have to finish the work in the meal time, and sometimes they will come to school to complete it in weekend. Nowadays, the art of playing huagan in Fuxing Township will fail to be handed down from past generations, and the people who knew it before have been dead, there is a little people know it. So you have to ask the elder if you wanna understand, the students asked the families at first, then to find the people who may know. Fortunately, the students found two elderly who can paly huagan. We knew a lot about huagan from them, and we also know that Fuxing township government has listed huagan as the traditional culture of Fu Xing town to develop. Data collection: The topic of our choice is Playing Huagan this year. Although nobody quite understand what Huagan is, we finally found 2 people knowing how to play Huagan. We can usually get some information through interviewing, but they are away from Fuxing a lot. So we had to take every chance to visit them on doing research for our project.
