This class will explore leadership skills and creative writing through the lens of DnD. During the first two weeks we will explore the leadership role of a Game Master(GM) and how to create a play environment that makes sure everyone is on board and expectations are properly set. Week 3 is about world building and plot design, teaching the basics of story telling and how to apply them. Week 4 and 5 are a continuation/expansion of week three with student creations being workshopped in a...
Students will learn leadership skills that will enable them to lead groups, increase productivity, delegate work responsibly, and keep everyone on task. These will be taught through the lens of DnD, a group tabletop game designed to create storytelling narratives. Students will also learn basic story telling skills for genre fiction. These skills will include but are not limited to character creation, world building, tone, theme, and plot. These are the building blocks of fiction, and through the lens of DnD they can learn and practice these essential pieces of story telling by writing their own narrative for the game they will lead.
It is not required but is very much recommended for students to create an outline of a world they wish to set a DnD campaign. This would put the story building skills learned in the class into practice. If they finish this before week 4 or 5 they may present them to the class and get feed back from other students on what they liked and what they did not. In my opinion constructive criticism is an essential part of the creative process, feedback from peers especially can be helpful. Students will always get my feedback on an outline no matter when they submit.
If a student submits an outline for their world I will give feedback on strengths weaknesses and places to focus on in the future for growth.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There are no Graphic images or videos I will show, however the game DnD that the class uses as a teaching tool is based around fictional violence. The tabletop game simulates fantasy narratives that have antagonistic forces generally being resolved with violence. Imagine Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter playing out as a board game. The climaxes of both these famous stories are battles.
