The students will learn how to make an Arabian Checkmate by using a Knight and a Rook to checkmate the King trapped in a corner. This checkmate is one of the oldest checkmates because the moves of the Knight and Rook and not changed for over a thousand years, while the moves of the other pieces have changed. The students will also learn how to do the Hallway Checkmate by trapping the King in the middle of the board by using Rooks or Queens to guard the Ranks or Files, or "Hallways" on the...
The student will become a stronger chess player when he/she learns how to spot the possible checkmates on the board and use his/her pieces to effectively carry out the checkmating plan. The Arabian Checkmate and the Hallway Checkmate are basic checkmates that all chess players need to know to improve their playing skills.
Students will receive chess curriculum and a chess puzzle homework sheet to be printed out. The chess puzzle homework sheet will be discussed in the last few minutes of class to make sure all students understand what to do. At the beginning of the next class, we will go over the homework to check for understanding.
5 files available upon enrollmentAll students will need to have a chess board in front of them, with the file letters and the rank numbers marked along the sides of the board. The bottom right corner square of the chess board (facing you) should be a white square (h1) and the top right corner square should be a black square (h8). Students should have a pencil with an eraser in class and a folder to keep all their chess curriculum and homework puzzles together.
A learner is assessed by understanding the answers on each chess puzzle assignment and knowing how to checkmate to win their games. When a student practices chess at home with others, or on-line, their skills will increase--this will reflect in their knowledge of the game.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
