This is a collaborative storytelling game where a group of learners/adventurers can flex their imagination and explore a world filled with adventure! The aim of this course is to play a simplified version of Dungeons and Dragons to take the emphasis off the rules of the game and instead emphasize collaborative storytelling through creative problem solving, open-ended puzzles and social interactions. This approach allows the students to get creative in how they approach problems and have...
Roleplaying games are a wonderful tool for simulation training. Through roleplay students will have opportunities to practice self advocacy, collaboration, conversation, creative problem solving and behavioral training. Their character's provide opportunity for externalization, perspective taking, and empathetic insight while providing a natural reinforcement for pro-social interaction. This course aims to empower students by building social confidence and improve self regulation by failing forward, learning improvisation and overcoming obstacles.
No Homework is necessary. Students who wish to create their own character may create a character can bring a character sheet they've made in advance if desired.
If learners do not have a character sheet, a premade character will be provided for them in the enrolled learners welcome post.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Role-playing games rely on player input and creative collaboration. This sort of play relies on player's perception of a fantasy world which lends itself to pulling from stories associated with kingdoms, dragons, and magic. This can sometimes include fantasy violence using their character's "weapons" or magic" as in such works as Adventure Time, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. This fantasy violence will never be directly depicted but in-game violence may possibly be discussed as they encounter creatures such as shadow monsters, mechanical constructs, or rodents of unusual size. Non-violent solutions will always be possible as potential alternatives. Students will have access to resources from dndwizards.com through character sheets and through screenshare.
Character sheets can be provided upon request.
