Law of Unintended Consequences
Following the previous session The Law of Unintended Consequences, the members have a choice.
- If they started a story that they have engaged with and would like to continue it in class they can do so.
- If anyone is present who missed the previous session they can do the exercise from last week.
- If some people would like to begin with another starting point but follow the same procedure they can do that this week.
- They might like to take the same starting point but move along the lines they drew in a different direction. See how the story develops differently and how far they get with a new outcome
First, recap on what happened in the previous session and explain the choices.
