I’ve been teaching for about 25 years now. During that time I’ve been blessed to have been able to teach a wide range of classes and a wide range of grade levels. Hands down, one of the most popular and enjoyable classes that I’ve ever taught has been Minecraft: Construction and Architecture, which I teach live through one of our local co-ops. The class is always one of the first to fill up during our registration period, and often runs with a wait list. This past year, for Outschool I created a series of Minecraft Architecture classes for 10 to 14 year olds. I love teaching these classes and have many returning learners taking class after class in the series. I’m excited to be able to offer a class on Outschool which is specifically designed for younger learners. I’ve had many requests for a version of my Minecraft social studies class for elementary grades, and I’ve given a lot of thought to the best learning goals and format to make this happen. My objective as a teacher is to use the Minecraft platform as a vehicle to engage learning about other cultures, times, and places.
Each week, learners will be completing a build on Minecraft. Learners may use any version of Minecraft on any platform (tablets, ipads, switch, xbox, computer, playstation….all work!). Learners might spend 30 minutes to an hour on each build each week. (Though some learners spend more time and add more details.)
Learners need.... --Minecraft on ANY platform (Java, Bedrock, Xbox, Playstation, Switch, ipad, tablet, etc....) --Ability to take pictures (via screenshot or using a phone or tablet) to post to the classroom or send to the teacher.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
