The world’s greatest role-playing game is heading back to school! Wizards of the Coast in partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, has announced an initiative to bring Dungeons & Dragons to 200 classrooms nationwide. Through the partnership, selected teachers will receive a Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) library along with much-needed funding to support their classrooms. Beginning today, teachers supporting grades 4-12 at high-needs schools with an active AdoptAClassroom.org classroom page can fill out an online application to enter for a chance to win the adventure of a lifetime for their students.
Selected teachers will receive the following D&D books and accessories to add to their classroom libraries:
- Player’s Handbook
- Dungeon Master’s Guide
- Monster Manual
- Candlekeep Mysteries
- D&D Essentials Kit
- D&D Campaign Cases – both Creatures and Terrain
- D&D Afterschool Club Kit, including a copy of D&D Starter Set: Dragons of Stormwreck Isle
In addition to receiving D&D libraries, selected teachers will also receive $100 in funding through AdoptAClassroom.org so they can order the classroom supplies they need through the AdoptAClassroom.org Marketplace.
Dungeons & Dragons offers students the ability to learn key life skills such as problem-solving, collaboration, inclusivity, and empathy as well as develop invaluable literacy and math skills – all in a fun and engaging way. Wizards of the Coast also offers D&D-inspired teaching kits for grades 4-8, allowing teachers to empower their students to become more confident, tackle challenges head-on, and learn perseverance right in the classroom.
Teachers looking for D&D curriculum and additional resources to incorporate Dungeons & Dragons into their classrooms or schools can find materials online.
