In this conversation focused class, students will take part in different projects in Minecraft, each with a historical and cultural topic. Students will be supported in making iconic buildings in creative mode. History and culture will be briefly integrated into the class. The main focus will be on teaching spoken English skills, including communication and conversation skills. Making history come alive for students, and establishing a community mindset is an additional focus to this class....
1. Understand complex and extended speech used in the discussion of reasonably familiar subjects 2. Communicate with some spontaneity and engage in extended conversation by giving clear descriptions and expressing and explaining views on most general subjects 3. Initiate, maintain and end the discourse with effective turn-taking 4. Demonstrate a sufficient range of language to produce stretches of discourse, using some complex sentence forms and without much searching for words, while correcting most of his or her mistakes.
Most of my teaching background is in EFL instruction to the K12 age group, which I've done in class, online and in summer camps for the last eight years! I have also been creating courseware for EnglishToGo for three years, with the vision to provide students with exceptional classes, as well as learning methods. My TEFL is a 120 hr course done in-class with the WORLD TEFL ASSOCIATION. I have a Bachelors degree in Management and music, as well as various certificates including an Acalog ACMS in Modern World History. In addition, I am currently studying online courses in communication and rhetorical studies, and am a part of the Minecraft Teacher Academy where I take courses in educating with Minecraft.
This class will require the Minecraft Windows 10 Edition (Bedrock Edition), which can be used on any device. It is not compatible with the Minecraft Java Edition. If the student has the Java Edition then they can still download the Windows 10 Edition for this class. I will need the student's gamer tag at least one day before the class, in order to add them as a friend, and invite them to the Minecraft world. It will be helpful if the student has Minecraft running just before the start of the class, and I will invite them to the world or realm after the class starts.
Students will be assessed informally. At any point in the course if a student is doing particularly well in an area, or if they are having difficulties with anything, I will inform parents.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please be aware that Minecraft is a platform outside of Outschool. Minecraft, are COPPA-compliant and learners under 13 may use them freely, without parental oversight. The Minecraft software can be downloaded from https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/download

Having traveled a lot, and lived in several countries, I can say that I am highly experienced in social and cultural aspects. My inspiration for teaching comes from my desire to pass on my love of progress, and learning in general, on to others. I...
