Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
This course allows for student-led discussion and interaction with classmates who share an interest in Stardew Valley. Students will discuss economics, return on investment, food production methods, logical progressions, seasonal crops and growing times, prioritization, risk-reward, and time management.
I am a Stardew Valley enthusiast, myself. I play on PC, and with over 1200 in-game hours I have personally finished 100 percent of the game - three times! Stardew Valley stands head and shoulders above most of the games I've played, and has many valuable educational aspects to teach players while still being a ton of fun to play. I look forward to sharing this game -- and its great lessons -- with students.
There is no specific homework, although students may not object to a few hours of playing time between classes... for research purposes, of course.
Stardew Valley, the game!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Stardew Valley is a farming simulation game that was rated by Common Sense Media as 9+. Parents should be advised that there is some alcohol content, and players can brew alcohol as a farm product. One character to interact with appears to be alcoholic (but he gets better through your friendship). Players can marry any one of several characters, regardless of gender. There are a few saucy lines in the relationship dialog. There is some monster killing in dark caves, which younger players may find scary. For individual reviews, check out:

Learners may also want to share personal information such as server codes or IP address in order to co-op play. Please talk to your learner about cyber security and what should or should not be shared during class.
