How does D&D fit in with the Curriculum?
(Outcomes documents currently being updated)
D & D can be linked to several key Curriculum for Excellence outcomes within Health & Wellbeing, Literacy, and Numeracy. The skills used within the context of the game (role playing; creativity; listening; talking; maths) are transferable to the real world.
Health & Wellbeing – Social interaction; inclusion; learning to build and maintain positive friendships; taking responsibility; decision making; being part of a group – teamwork; resilience – dealing with ‘setbacks’ within the game; learning to express feelings & emotions through roleplaying characters; decision making; leadership
Literacy – listening & talking; communicating; explaining; summarising information; making relevant contribution; selecting and using relevant information; reading; note taking; organising; linking information; creating texts (designing own adventures to run as a DM); persuading.
