Class Experience

At the conclusion of the course students will be able to do the following:
a) Describe the core ideas inherent in a table top roleplaying game.
b) Begin the process of basic character creation to use in a game session.
c) Be able to select a preferred "race" and "class" in the game.

As Dungeons and Dragons is an expansive "game system", learning as they go is essential for student success as they begin to enjoy this roleplaying world.
The founder of the DnD Club Academy, Adam Scott, has been a professional classroom teacher his entire career, and playing role-playing games since he was 10 years old. In addition to his teaching experience, he believes each class should put the students at the center of learning, minimizing lecture and encouraging interaction. The DnD Club has organized and taught groups of Dungeons and Dragons for hundreds of students and community members, running games professionally for private clients between the ages of 8-70 years old. 

It's our mission that your child feels empowered and excited after this lesson, potentially sparking an interest in a wonderful activity.
Students are encouraged to begin creating a "character" by selecting a "species" and "class" after the course, beginning to put the ideas from the session into practice. This may generate questions which they can ask the instructor as a follow up to the lesson.
Students will need paper and pencil to take brief notes, and to write down things they think are amazing!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Roleplaying games offer a creative "sandbox" in which participants can engage in imaginative problem solving. Fantasy violence will not be directly depicted, but the possibilities of this within the game will be discussed. Students may wish to explore ideas related to their characters that involve in-game "weapons" and "spells" for the use of "in-game" violence.
