Discovery Year 5. Session 4. Week 2.

Discovery Heroes moved through Week 2 with powerful momentum. Stay tuned to see how the Studio braved new challenges in Work Cycle, Quest, and Writers’ Workshop! 


The integrated Work Cycle experiment continued this week. Learners are exploring what it looks and feels like to navigate a three hour work cycle for the first time. Work Cycle changes this session have been a rich learning opportunity. In the midst of continuing progress toward their goals, the Studio reflected on finding flow, losing flow, releasing energy, and channeling energy. 


Do you believe in luck? Do you consider yourself a lucky person? These were the questions Discovery game designers grappled with this week during Quest. The tribe began considering the level of luck they will incorporate into their own games. Through the creation of fast paced dice and target games, designers gained a deeper understanding of probability and chance. 


This week’s poetry deep dive: haikus! The Studio found examples and inspiration by reading, If Not for the Cat by Jack Prelutsky and Zen Ties by Jon J. Muth. If you walked into the space during Writers’ Workshop, you’re likely to hear scattered clapping around the Studio. Writers supported one another with conceptualizing and counting syllables as they crafted their own poems.
