Learning how to read and write notation is an essential tool for the student if he/she wants to continue their chess skill level. All chess books and chess websites indicate the chess moves with Algebraic Notation and all chess students need to be knowledgeable about this. If the student ever participates in a United States Chess Federation Rated Tournament, they will be required to keep track of their moves, either by paper and pencil, or electronically.
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.
