List of Dungeons and Dragons Spells

This is not a comprehensive list of spells!  This is a list of 300 plus spells that are generally self explanatory.  I have used this list in 7-10th grade advanced ESL classes.  The students create a magical hero or heroine and then a write a short story about this hero or heroine.  One rule I impose is that the hero or heroine can only use three of the spells on the list.  This is a great small group activity that develops vocabulary and excites their young imaginations.  If the a students asked the meaning of a spell then I used guided questioning to help the student guess what the spell might be rather than telling the students out right what the spell does.
