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.

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 around three steps of a build. It’s recommended that you focus on one step a day. 
Each step has a short 5-9 minute instructional video with complete directions and demonstration. 
Each step needs a picture taken of it and sent to the teacher in order to "unlock" the next short instructional video. 
Each of the building steps should be short and your learner should be able to complete it in well under 30 minutes (usually 5 to 15 minutes).
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.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will need assistance taking pictures or screenshots of their builds to send to the teacher through Outschool between class meeting times.
