Chess for Fun (MWF) ~ a Social, No-Stress Chess Club Where All Are Welcome

In this ongoing course, we will play real games of chess with each other, picking up where we left off from session to session. We play for pure fun, meaning there is no tournament or scoring.

Class Experience

I want my students to learn:
1. The value of LOSING.  When you lose a game, you were taught something, and get the opportunity to grow! 
2. The love of playing chess; so valuable 
3. Strategies to help them improve their game of course!
I started and ran a chess club in the elementary school I worked at last, and currently teach Beginner Chess Club here on Outschool.  It is such a fun job to watch students develop a love for this game!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Google Slides
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
