Dungeons & Dragons Reveals Educators Kits
This sounds great.
Wizards of the Coast has a new initiative to provide a platform using Dungeons & Dragons for social activities and educational learning.
In celebration of the release of a new starter set, Wizards will provide Dungeons & Dragons-themed classroom materials for teachers across the country to add to their curriculum. The new teaching kits aimed for grades 4-6 and 6-8 offer a way for educators to incorporate D&D into their lesson plans, reinforcing language arts, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills all while having fun going on an adventure. On top of that, schools, libraries, community centers and enrichment organizations can receive the D&D Afterschool Kit, which includes everything needed to start or enhance D&D clubs and meetups.
D&D has surged in popularity recently, and educators have taken note of its many benefits in a social learning environment. By its very nature, D&D fosters collaboration and problem solving while helping to build empathy and self-confidence in its players. With D&D, kids get hands-on practice with math, reading, and writing.
