Using Dungeons & Dragons to Scaffold Writing Instruction

Storytelling is central to the roleplaying game Dungeons & Dragons (D&D), and players who build and navigate in-game “campaigns” are essentially exercising their writing muscle. In this ILA Webinar, you’ll not only learn how D&D can be a powerful motivator for student writing but also leave with practical ideas for incorporating the fantasy world into your scaffolded writing instruction.

Speakers include:

  • Earl Aguilera
  • Maryanne Cullinan
  • Kade C. Wells
  • Rebecca West

This event was the third in a sponsored three-part series that ILA hosted in collaboration with Wizards of the Coast, who created a website specifically for educators with additional resources and a free D&D Afterschool Kit that contains everything you need to start a D&D club at your school or library.

Dungeons & Dragons is intended for ages 12+.
