Discovery is the action or process of discovering or being discovered. It encompass the experience of discovering something for the first time or rediscovering something that has been lost, forgotten or concealed. It can be sudden and unexpected or even emerge from a process of deliberate and careful planning evoked by curiosity or wonder. It offer new understandings and renewed perceptions of ourselves and others. An individual’s discoveries can vary according to personal, cultural, and social context and values. The impact can be far-reaching and transformative for the individual and for broader society.
I have positive sense about discoveries, since it can be fresh and intensely meaningful in ways that may be emotional, creative, intellectual, physical, and spiritual, confronting, and provocative. Discoveries can lead us to new worlds and values, stimulate new ideas, and enable us to speculate about the future probabilities.
As I begin this area of study, I have no idea about what it is going to be and I was curious about what will be discussed further more by both the teachers and the students. But, once I got the rubric from one of my teacher, Mr. Joshua, I started to understand and have specific point of view regarding the concept of Discovery. I was excited in figuring out that discovery and the process of discovering can vary between each individuals. It is important for individuals and society because by exploring the concept of discovering, we can understand how text have the potential to affirm or challenge individuals.
