Dungeons & Dragons
Dungeons & Dragons – Raritan High School teacher Sarah Roman uses Dungeons and Dragons to engage and excite her students about literature. The students act as heroes traversing the landscapes of the texts, discovering interesting characters, and fitting their adventures into the plot of the book. They work on their close-reading skills to successfully compete for quests and it’s an awesome way to get them talking about the books in new ways. Sarah says mental health professionals have used Dungeon and Dragons to help clients role play and step outside of themselves to become different people.
