Class experience

US Grade 6 - 8
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 middle school chess clubs for over a decade, with a special focus on gifted learners, students on the autism spectrum, and providing a space for LQBTQ+ students.
Learners should be familiar with using a web browser and zoom. 
Please make sure that learners have access to Chess.com (account required) or Lichess.org (account optional). 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students have the option of playing chess using Chess.com or Lichess.org.

- 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:

- chess.com articles, puzzles, and interactive chess lessons.
- lichess.org for articles, puzzles, and interactive chess lessons.
