One of the best parts about D&D is being able to design your own character. This process encourages creativity, critical thinking, basic understanding of statistics, and when working with a group of friends, cooperation leading to problem solving. Many players even use their characters as inspiration for short stories or pieces of creative fiction. This class assumes that students understand what the different races and classes are in the game world, and know what types of roles they fill in...
By the end of class students will be able to create their own characters using DnD Beyond. They will have an understanding of how the various components of the character building rules fit together to create a playable persona.
The founder of The DnD Club, 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 with children between 10-15 years old. We want you to live your adventure. It's our mission that your child feels empowered and excited after this lesson, potentially sparking an interest in a wonderful activity.
Students must create a D&D Beyond account before class. This is essential for the successful completion of the class.
This class uses the DnDBeyond.com website to create characters and is required for the course. Many students use two devices to have the best experience: one for the zoom call, the other for the website. If students opt for this route, we strongly encourage students to use the computer/desktop/laptop for interaction with the website, and the other device (typically an iPad/tablet) for logging into the zoom call. To access the site, parents must use their gmail or apple ID to create an account. The site does not accept account credentials from users under the age of 13 to comply with new federal laws related to data privacy. If I can help or answer any questions with this, please let me know. Students that do not have an account at the beginning of class will be transferred into another session at a later date. Students will need paper and pencil to take brief notes, and to write down things they think are amazing! Students may wish to purchase the D&D Players Handbook. This is an optional text. A link is included for reference.
1 hour 30 minutes 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.
