Class Experience

By the end of this course, students will have a thorough foundational understanding of the game of chess, how to plan ahead, and how to win against their peers.  They will also leave with a basic understanding of how competitive chess tournaments are structured, and will feel prepared to compete against peers of their age and skill levels.  
No homework will be assigned, but students are encouraged to practice what they've learned against family and friends, at home or online, between classes.  
 1 file available upon enrollment
We organize all of our virtual chess games on; each student, during their enrollment in this class, will be provided by us a Gold Membership to ChessKid (a $20 value). We believe that this is the safest and most comprehensive learning tool we can use to facilitate our in-class virtual games. Students are encouraged (but not required) to use this website for any practice games that they play outside of class also, so that their progress can be tracked and included in the Report Cards provided to parents; this would also assist our instructors in identifying how best to coach each student on concepts that they may be struggling with. After the end of the semester, students not continuing into one of our more advanced courses will still have limited access to ChessKid to play virtual games at their leisure, but their archived game history will eventually disappear.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
All students who complete the course will be sent a certificate of completion as well as award ribbons conferred for their placement in the in-class tournament.  Report cards will also be made available to parents by request, at any time during or at the end of the semester, detailing their child's progress. 
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class uses the external website ChessKid to facilitate online chess games between classmates.  ChessKid is 100% committed to safety, and meets Outschool's standards for Safety and Privacy ONLY FOR LEARNERS AGE 13 AND OLDER.  If you are enrolling your child in this class, you are identifying your child as age 13 or older, and Central NY Chess will take no further steps to confirm your child's age.  If your child does not already have a ChessKid account, we will create one for them, and can provide parental administrative access to that account at any time upon your request.
