Classcraft: Season 1 will premiere during Back to School 2019, with a new episode released each month. Teachers can use it as a year-long adventure to complement their existing lessons, creating deeper student engagement.

You can watch the trailer for Season 1 here.

Classcraft: Season 1 is a part of Classcraft’s new “Story Mode,” which is designed to help teachers improve student engagement, foster a positive school climate, and promote social emotional learning (SEL) through a series of ready-made stories set within the Classcraft world.

By providing a set of plug-and-play stories that align to class objectives, Story Mode allows teachers to harness the power of storytelling without having to spend time crafting their own narratives.

Classcraft: Season 1, which explores themes of self-discovery and the value of human relationships through a year-long adventure story, will premiere during Back to School 2019. New episodes will be released each month. The Season 1 trailer was created and animated by Classcraft’s Storytelling team of writers, designers, and illustrators, who have been recognized for their work at video game studios such as EA and Gameloft. The trailer features an original orchestral score by award-winning film composer Garth Stevenson.
