The students will learn how to create a Double Check, which is a kind of a Discovered Attack. The Double Check places the opponent's King in check by two pieces at the same time, which is a very powerful tactic because there is no way to block the attack. Since there is no way to block both attacks or capture both pieces, the students will see that the only possibility is to move the King.

The students will become stronger chess players as they learn how to create a Double Check and by playing chess games on-line.
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.
4 files available upon enrollmentStudents 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.
The student will be using the lichess.org website to practice various checkmates and to play games against other students or the teacher. This is a FREE site for students to access to improve their chess skills. ChessKid.com is also a great resource for students to access daily Chess Puzzles, to play chess against the computer, or against other students around the world. There are videos on this site that the students can watch, done by Grand Masters, who can really help the student achieve a higher skill level in chess.
