In this ongoing chess club, learners practice strategic thinking, problem solving, and social conversation skills while playing one of the world's greatest games. We primarily focus on Standard chess, but also play variants and puzzles.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 5
Beginner - Intermediate Level
Students will increase their skill in chess and, through playing, improve their strategic thinking. They will learn to both win and lose politely and with dignity.  
I have been teaching students how to play chess and managing a middle school chess club for over a decades, with a special focus on exceptional learners (gifted learners, students on the autism spectrum, LQBTQ+ inclusion groups). 
Please ensure that learners are comfortable clicking on and copy / pasting website links, as we start games through the Zoom chat. Learners should understand to raise their hand if they have a question while someone else is talking. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students have the option of playing chess using Chess.com or Lichess.org.
- All Lichess games are anonymous unless you choose to create an account for your child. Parents are responsible for their child's Lichess account if you choose to make one. 

- All Chess.com games require sharing a registered username. Parents are responsible for their child's Chess.com account if you choose to make one.  
I will use the following external resources to enrich your child's learning experience:
- andrewlinke.com/chess for basic chess lessons and GIFs of how to play chess.
- chess.com articles, puzzles, and interactive chess lessons.
- lichess.org for articles, puzzles, and interactive chess lessons.
