Takeaways from Our Freshman Year of D&D in Schools
In early fall 2022, teachers were able to download Dungeons & Dragons-inspired teaching kits at no cost, offering students the opportunity to go on collaborative storytelling adventures right in their classrooms. Results showed that over 9 million students and teachers, from all economic and cultural backgrounds, saw higher test scores with an added games-based curriculum than those without. Embarking on RPG quests help enhance storytelling, language arts, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills, and last year proved there’s so much room to grow offerings to support longer curricula and after-school clubs.
