Class Experience

US Grade 8 - 11
Students will exercise a variety of skills, including: 
- Teamwork
- Problem solving
- Empathy 
- Imagination

Students will also be encouraged to practice summarizing and creative writing through weekly adventure journals.
I have managed chess clubs and role playing groups for more than a decade. I was a middle-school English teacher for a dozen years and have been working with kids in community groups, such as Scouts, for nearly twenty years. 
Each week students will be asked to respond to a writing prompt. The prompt will change each week, but will generally consist of a brief summary of an important event from the day's role playing session and an invitation for players to write about what their characters will do next. 

While these prompts are not required, students will receive in-game benefits (preference in turn order and dice roll bonuses) for replying to prompts.

This is an ongoing adventure for kids who already know some of the basics of role playing games. Students should be familiar with the D&D Basic Rules, which are available for free on the Wizards of the Coast website, numerous System Reference Document websites, or in the classroom. For players who are new to the game I recommend my "Building a Hero" introduction to creating a characters and playing roleplaying games. 🗺 I will use Alchemy RPG as a virtual tabletop. Students are NOT required to join the tabletop, but doing so will make it easier for them to track character actions. 📓 The storyline will be documented in the OutSchool classroom. 📜Students will post their adventure journals to OutSchool.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will receive verbal feedback and encouragement during each roleplay session. Students who participate in the writing prompts will receive praise, feedback on their writing, and in-game bonuses.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
D&D is a game which includes elements of fantasy magic and combat. While the focus of this class will be problem solving and creativity, students' characters may engage in combat against non-player characters. Stories will include magic and mythical creatures. 
Students will use the Basic Rules System Reference Document for D&D. This PDF is available for free on the Wizards of the Coast website or in the classroom. 

Students who need help building a character may take my Building a Hero class or use this website to help them create a simple character: https://fastcharacter.com/
