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, two of the most popular and enjoyable classes that I’ve ever taught have been Minecraft: Construction and Architecture AND The Amazing Race (World Geography) both of  which I’ve taught live through one of our local co-ops. These classes are always some of the first to fill up during our registration period, and often run with a wait list.

I’ve been offering a series of Minecraft Architecture on Outschool for several months now, and have so enjoyed the experience! I appreciate the number of returning learners I have throughout many of these classes and love the community and relationship with these groups of learners. Many of them have been asking that we step outside of Western Civ history to learn about architecture in other regions of the world. After doing a lot of reflection, research, and work on the topic, I’m happy to be able to answer the learners’ requests with Minecraft Geography.

My Minecraft classes not only teach about history and culture, but they teach respect of other people groups as well as respect of classmates. They teach cooperation and communication skills.. They teach critical thinking, problem solving, and perseverance. I am really proud to be able to offer them. I hope you will find them as valuable as I do.
Before class--learners should spend approximately 30 minutes looking over the provided links for that week.  Learners will pick 2 locations to respond to (with text or video) on the classroom message boards.

This class does utilize links to other many other sites on the internet...some travel sites, some blogs, some museum websites, some wiki articles, and some youtube videos. Please be aware that while I carefully screen and select each site I link to, I cannot control ad content on some of these sites.

Hello! Thank you for letting me take the time to introduce myself! One of the first questions I get asked about myself is about my name. The closest English pronunciation of my first name is "Sun."  My name is Vietnamese, and means "Spring" and I...
