My Students

Our Dungeons and Dragons Club is just getting started! We currently have 15 kiddos who are ready to take the leap and go on a memorable adventure. In this club, students are going to be involved in cooperative storytelling every week. This will help them practice mental math, problem-solving, social and communication skills, logical thinking, and teamwork - while we have a ton of fun! Our students come from a huge variety of backgrounds. We have a significant population of low income and at-risk kids, meaning our D&D kids come from very diverse backgrounds. Some are phenomenal students while others may struggle to keep up. D&D helps them come together in ways they have not previously had the opportunity of doing.

Many of these kids feel that it is difficult to fit into the "normal" clubs and are not comfortable in joining athletic groups, but D&D club will help them learn to express themselves and build relationships at an age where that can be very frustrating.

Our school does not currently have many clubs available to students, outside of sports, so this is filling a need not otherwise met for some of these students!

My Project

There are many known benefits to playing strategy based role-playing (RPG) games like Dungeons and Dragons. Research shows that the benefits to playing D&D are both social and academic. Socially, kids who play RPGs have to work cooperatively together. Academically, they’re reading, they are creatively solving problems, they’re researching, and they’re even doing a little light math when they consider the probability of the roll of the dice and adding up the numbers on the dice.

Through the donation of these materials and the creation of this club an opportunity unlike any that these students currently have is being created.
