Class Experience

Students will learn how early settlers created new colonies, including how to utilize natural resources.
Students will plan a settlement in a certain way to achieve various goals.
Students will learn various ways to solve problems as a group, like voting and compromising.
Students will practice oral presentations in order to convince the team to attempt a particular project.
Students will reflect on the outcomes of the team's decisions to analyze why a settlement was or was not successful.
I hold a California Teaching Credential for grades K-8, which qualifies me to teach Social Studies, Government and History. 
Students should have a notebook and writing utensil available in case there is a time to take notes. Students are not required to purchase a copy of the game Banished and are not required to play it between sessions, but students may benefit from playing the game between class meetings.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
As in any survival simulator, the death of virtual people does occur.
