Chess and Dungeons & Dragons
Dungeons & Dragons w/Jason Kelleher
Cohasset Recreation is thrilled to welcome back Jason Kelliher as our Dungeons & Dragons instructor. Jason has been with Cohasset High School since 2016-2017 teaching English and College Prep World Literature. He is also a faculty adviser for CHS Robotics and began moderating a CHS Dungeons and Dragons class in his classroom. The Recreation Dungeons and Dragons program offers the opportunity to take part in the world’s most popular tabletop role-playing game. Participants will assume the role of a daring adventurer of their own creation and embark on an epic journey with 4-5 adventuring companions. As an exercise in collaborative storytelling, D&D allows young adventurers to build relationships, apply their creativity, and solve complex problems. In addition, the game’s intricate dice-based rules system helps to promote various mathematical skills. The program will provide access to D&D’s core rulebooks and play materials (including dice, player pieces, and maps). We will teach the fundamentals of D&D to inexperienced players while enriching the experience of veteran players.
