The Outpost

book 1: "Joan's calling"

book 2: "the return"

Enter Joan, a clever but scorned No-Beast. Life is hard for Joan, with a world famous father and a defiance that is second to none. Just when it seems life could not get any more difficult, she gets into a back-alley fight that sets in motion something that will change the world. 

As Joan struggles to wrap her mind around what has just happened, her father takes the lead. Joan quickly begins to wonder if he has her best interests at heart…

WHAT CAN the STUDENTS EXPECT?

1

self and social awareness

The Unfound Adventures team will come in to creatively explore how every student brings something vital to a team. Through understanding Callings (the spiritual companions) within the Unfound Universe, and students creating their own, we help them think more deeply about their strengths and how they can use those in acts of service to their fellows. 

2

Classroom Calling collaboration

One option: Instead of making the workshop an exercise in individuality, this workshop focuses on creating a "classroom Calling" - a single beast that represents the collective identity. Students will still have a chance to offer their unique insights, but collaboration will be encouraged. In the end, the students will have a single Calling that can be shown off like a badge of honor with the fellows.

3

imagination & creativity exercise

In this alternative format, we will discuss the different types of Callings - almost like a "what do you want to be when you grow up" discussion - and have students thinking about what skills and interests they bring to the table. 

There will be opportunities to create, imagine, interact, and collaborate in fun ways with their classmates. 




4

storytelling workshop

Students will learn about creative frameworks, the beats of storytelling, how to publish their own books, and how to infuse their lives with creativity, imagination, and initiative.  

In this format, students will have a chance to learn how to write and publish their own stories, various creative frameworks, and lessons in social interaction in the collective setting, but then consider themselves and how they fit in the world in a more interactive environment. This multi-day, multi-setting approach is the best way for the Unfound team to match the lesson plans with the most conducive environments. 

School and Classroom Visits

family involvement

Every kid will go home with "Joan's Calling", the first book in the "Tales of Bastunia" series. We find that the more the lessons within school are unified with the discussions within the home, the more likely they are to stick. The way the comics are written - with one part comic and one part prose - make them perfect for adults to immerse themselves in the same stories that have captured their children. 

We love to see parents and kids exploring their places within the world of Bastunia - the central world in the Unfound Adventures comics. In this way, parents, teachers, and kids will get to share in each others' enthusiasm.
