Band of Buccaneers
This year we will be “gamifying” much of the class. In Band of Buccaneers (online - see registration instructions below), students will complete “quests” to earn XP. Much like an RPG, some quests must be unlocked and there are many “paths” which students can take to perfect their skills or build new skills. Each grading period, students are expected to earn 600 XP by completing various quests. (Note: While students do have the freedom to choose which quests they complete, some quests must be completed in order to unlock more quests.) This portion of your grade will be determined by dividing total points earned by the required points.
I’ll give a full explanation during band camp, but you can explore it on your own. You may go ahead and log on to get started this summer if you wish. Any points earned over the summer will count towards the first grading period.
***Many of the quests require approval from me before you can move on. I will try to check and approve quests a couple times each week, but it is summer so I can’t guarantee it. If you are stuck waiting on a quest to be approved, try looking at other quests/paths that might be available.
