Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will be able to identify different parts of the LGBTQIA+ community. 
Learners will develop their interpersonal skills as they discuss their ideas with their peers. 
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. 
There is no homework assigned for this class. 
Students will need Minecraft: Java Edition, the latest version. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The following topics may come up in conversation.

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 another member of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

Discrimination and Hate Crimes: Some learners may mention these topics when discussing different rooms in the house or talking about their experience as an 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. My stance is that mental health should not ever be stigmatized and we will talk about mental health as a way to better understand the experiences of the person we are discussing for the week. 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.

About Me

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...
