Class Experience

Students will learn about the concept of worldbuilding. Students will define and practice 6 important elements of worldbuilding, including Geography, People and/or Creatures, Cultures and Societies, Magic Systems, History, and Technology. Students will learn how to create a map for their fantasy world. Students will learn how to use the world around them to inspire their fantasy concepts. 
My experience in discussing how the mentioned topics relate to worldbuilding in novels comes from my degree in English and experience in writing these topics. 
I will give worksheets for homework, but these are more as a reference to help the students with their writing, rather than an assignment we will go over in class.

Students should have a notebook and pen/pencil for notes. For the class where we play The Dice Game, students will need the worksheet given at the beginning of class and 4-8 dice for the game (I take some from my Yatzzee game for this exercise).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class focuses on giving students the tools they need for creating a fictional world. That said, we will cover sensitive topics such as war, famine, relations between different populations and people groups, sickness, magic, populations or persons in power, power shifts in leadership, poverty, and potential political unrest. These conversations could lead to discussions about discrimination as well. When discussing these topics, our goal is to think about how these things would affect the creatures and beings in the stories that students create. Meaning, we will discuss how these topics would create conflict in ways that would develop or affect the plot of the students' stories. We will never be graphic or insensitive in our discussions, nor will any of the videos we watch be on these topics or display these topics. 
We will look at three youtube videos.
