Class Experience

Students will gain a thorough understanding of Tolkien's Middle Earth through their experience in this class. 
Students will become familiar with the denizens, geography, and setting of Tolkien's works.
Students will be part of the legend and lore associated with Middle Earth.
Students will learn about the Three Pillars of Wisdom of D&D (inspired by Tolkien by the way)
Students will learn about problem solving and creative thinking skills.
Students will learn to cooperate as a team to overcome adversity. 
As with my other immersion adventures, I wish to share my life long interest in this RPG format. Having taught for the past 30 years I have found the best way to "get students to learn" is to involve them in the learning. Having the student vicariously live in Middle Earth and problem solving in Middle Earth is the best way for them to truly understand Tolkien's genius. 
No homework for class, however I do hope your learner will begin reading Tolkien with great interest on their own!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is an immersive literature experience using "the world's most popular role playing game"(D&D) as the vehicle for immersion. The Three Pillars of Adventure (exploration, role playing, and fantasy combat) are an inherent part of this class. Combat against  monsters or evil wizards will be managed within the context of Tolkien's works and the nature of the D&D experience. All sessions will maintain an age appropriate without overdoing the combat aspect. If your learner is already a Tolkien fan and enjoys RPGs then this is a fantastic opportunity. If your learner has yet to experience Tolkien, then there is no better introduction. 

This class can be a solo adventure - contact me for details. 
Of course my main source is Tolkien, however there are a vast number of RPGs which are wonderfully clever and faithful to Tolkien's genius.
