H848: Creative Nonfiction: Telling Our Stories in Splash Spring 2023 (Apr. 29, 2023)
In his novel The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss writes, “[E]veryone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.” Do you have a story you wish to tell the world–a unique personal history or creation myth? This lesson is a gentle introduction to creative nonfiction, the genre for writing “true stories.” Through a series of short readings, discussions, and writing exercises, we will explore why we write, how to convey a truth, and what kind of stories we wish to bring forth into the world.

?849: How to Play Dungeons & Dragons in Splash Spring 2023 (Apr. 29, 2023)
Have you ever daydreamed of being in an epic fantasy world, slaying dragons, wielding magic, and making friends with strange and wondrous creatures? Dungeons & Dragons is a table-top roleplaying game in which you can go on any adventure with a group of friends and be part of a collaborative story. You may have heard of it from Stranger Things or popular D&D shows like Critial Role or Dimension 20. In this lesson, you will be introduced to the basic game mechanics of D&D, make your own characters, and play for an hour-long session! (Note: The Lesson Plan was intended for a 50-minute class, but the class has since then been extended to 110 minutes long)
