How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
You've learned what Dungeons & Dragons is all about, now its time to test your mettle in combat. Some sessions will "talk at you"...not here, students are placed at the focus of the lesson and will be actively working together 10 minutes into the session. Through this one-session adventure, students will learn about the basic combat mechanics, as well as teamwork, cooperation, and problem solving skills. This class is designed for new players and for players to practice combat rules with some...
The goal of the class is to familiarize the learner with the mechanics of combat, saving throws, skill, and ability checks that might occur during a session. The adventure is “completed” when the caravan has been successfully defended from in game enemies.
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.
No homework will be assigned. Students will be encouraged to perform some follow up reading from D&D resources.
6 files available upon enrollmentStudents will need to select a Level 1 character. This can be an existing character they've created or a pregenerated character, for which a link is provided under the resources section. Students will need paper and pencil. They will use the online dice roller during the session. Some may wish to purchase the D&D Player Handbook for follow up reading. A link is provided for reference.
Students will be encouraged to calculate their experience points and "level up" their characters after the adventure.
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.
