In the last decade there has been a phenomenal growth of chess within the educational community.
The popularity of chess is no accident: in an era of compulsive zapping of TV channels, violent gaming and mobile chatter, learning chess means improving basic skills (like analysis, decision making, strategic thinking, stamina, and dealing with stress) while interacting meaningfully with other pupils. A great job for motivated teachers and coaches.
But how do you teach chess? What material do you use? Is there a particularly successful method? How do you sell a chess curriculum, how do motivate your pupils and monitor their progress?
The Chess Instructor 2009 aims to give answers to all these questions, and more. It provides tools and methodologies for beginners as well as for more advanced coaching. With ready-to-use teaching exercises for all levels.
