D&D Goes Back To School In New Educational Partnership To Help Teachers Bring Adventure To The Classroom

Share This Post

Wizards of the Coast in partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, have announced an initiative to bring Dungeons & Dragons to 200 classrooms across the country. Through the partnership, selected teachers will receive a Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) library along with much needed funding to support their classrooms. 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.

“Teachers spend an average of $860 of their own money on school supplies for their students each year,” said Ann Pifer, executive director of AdoptAClassroom.org. “Teachers shouldn’t have to spend so much out-of-pocket to ensure their students have the materials they need to learn. We are grateful to have partners like Dungeons & Dragons who step up to support educators and help equip students with the tools and materials they need to thrive in school.”

“Dungeons & Dragons is more than just a roleplaying game that brings us together in our social lives,” said Wizards of the Coast President, Cynthia Williams. “It is a powerful learning tool that can be used inside and outside the classroom, offering social, emotional, and creative benefits. Through our partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, we are hoping to provide teachers the resources they need to offer fun and engaging ways to empower students.”

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.
