Class Experience

I've introduced more people to D&D than I can count, and almost all of them continue to play to this day!  I've taught many D&D classes here on Outschool, and one thing that I notice in a lot of students is a general sort of confusion over the rules - things that a good Dungeon Master can easily help with and explain during class - but that might make a child nervous to play in a group of peers, where the DM might be less experienced.  I'm a big believer that the best way to learn D&D is to actually play D&D, but I'm also adept at giving clear, simple explanations of the rules.

I'll provide a set of pre-made characters that the students will be able to choose from. I'll also provide the Players Basic Rules. If students don't have a set of dice, they can use an online dice roller.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There will be a short combat encounter where students will be attacking goblins, and there will be a short encounter with an injured monster.  Students will also cast spells at each other, though the students' characters will not suffer any lasting damage.
