In the Dungeons and Dragons Online course, we will be running a roleplaying game in a setting much like “Lord of the Rings,” where there are elves, dragons, wizards, and many other fantastical elements. We start by creating characters in which the students can customize their character however they like before launching them into a world of quests and conflicts. Using the various skills of their characters, they must work together to not only tell the story but also to defeat the monsters lying within the story. Through this method, the students will build their skills on collaborative storytelling, teamwork, tactical strategy, and creative problem solving. Highly recommended for fantasy readers, aspiring writers, and lovers of strategy games.
NOTE: There are two sections for this course. The morning section is for Grades 4-6 and the afternoon section is for Grades 7-9. The morning section for Week 1, however, is no longer being offered.
