Class experience

-Students will develop interpersonal skills. 
-Students will use critical thinking to solve problems within Minecraft. 
I am a gay man who works hard to stay aware of issues that affect trans members of the LGBTQIA+ community, especially matters that affect African American transwomen. 
 2 files available upon enrollment
Learners will need: - a purchased copy of Minecraft: Java Edition for PC or Mac -CurseForge (this will allow for playing mods) -the installation of the mods used on the server (a guide will be given after enrollment) Here is more information about Forge and CurseForge. Forge- this is one of the programs that allows people to play modded versions of Minecraft. There is a unique version of Forge for each version of Minecraft. For example, if a mod is made for Minecraft version 1.12.2, then a person will need Forge version 1.12.2. (Likewise if a mod is meant for Minecraft version 1.7.10, then a person will need Forge version 1.7.10.) If you download Forge 1.12.2 then CurseForge is not needed. CurseForge- this program is a pre-launcher. You tell this program which mod you want to play or which Forge you want to play, and it downloads the necessary files to launch the correct version of Forge for you. This program also provides easy access to mod files for users.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Swearing: Some learners may use swear words when talking. 

Racism, Religion, and Politics: Some learners may mention these topics as they intersect with their identity as an LGBTQIA+ person. If this topic comes up, it will always be framed in the context of how the student presents it as long as it does not go against the existence of other marginalized members of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

Discrimination and Hate Crimes: Some learners may mention these topics when talking about about their experience or another LGBTQIA+ person. 

Mental Health: Some students may mention suicide, depression, and other mental health matters while talking freely in class about their experience as an LGBTQIA+ person. If students share that they are having mental health concerns personally, I will encourage them to seek out an adult in their personal life that they can trust since I am not a certified counselor and I will message their parent and Outschool Safety.

Sex Work- Some students might mention sex work when discussing some famous or influential LGBTQIA+ individuals. When discussions of sex work come up, I will treat it as a job that some people had to do to survive while also recognizing that some people choose this career. 

Forge- this is one of the programs that allows people to play modded versions of Minecraft. There is a unique version of Forge for each version of Minecraft. For example, if a mod is made for Minecraft version 1.12.2, then a person will need Forge version 1.12.2. (Likewise if a mod is meant for Minecraft version 1.7.10, then a person will need Forge version 1.7.10.)  If you download Forge 1.12.2 then CurseForge is not needed. 

CurseForge- this program is a pre-launcher. You tell this program which mod you want to play or which Forge you want to play, and it downloads the necessary files to launch the correct version of Forge for you. This program also provides easy access to mod files for users.

Profile
I am a fossil and language lover. I love talking about natural history just as much as I love to talk about languages. I believe we can learn a lot about our natural environment from fossils, just as much as we can learn about culture and history...
