Homework OfferedWe recommend students spend at least 1 hour a week practicing puzzles or playing games. Practice between classes is what will help each student improve at Chess and maintain an interest in the game. You can create a ChessKid.com account at home for practice and for personal use.
Assessments OfferedWe do not provide written feedback to families regarding their child's skill development. The best way to understand your child's progress is to encourage them to practice in between classes and to review their score in whichever online platform your family chooses for this practice. Platforms like ChessKid.com will show your child's rank and score. As we do not store personal information, we are unable to provide families with their child's rank and score from games played in class.
0Chess games must be played on a laptop or a computer. If your child has access to 2 devices they can enter the Outschool Zoom room via a tablet or smartphone, then use a laptop or computer for the digital chessboard. If your kid already has an online Chess account please keep it for your personal use. It is easier for the students to play each other if they use an account create by our teacher.
Chess.org or Lichess.org will be used for students to play games against the computer in addition to playing against their peers in class. An account is not required to use this tool. As an account is not required student personal identifying information is not stored in the online tool. We do not provide written feedback to families regarding their child's skill development.
