Then she joins the student body at The University of Texas at Brownsville as a freshman on a chess scholarship. Congrats, Julia!

PEER-REVIEWED CHESS ARTICLE PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Fri, May 08 2009 (17:06)
Publication in peer-reviewed journals is the gold standard of academic respectability. I have an article in the current issue of TEMPO, the peer-reviewed journal of the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented. Here is the citation and a description: Root, A. W. (2009, spring). Checkmating advisory and summer boredom. Tempo, 29(2), 10-14. This article describes the evolution of Strickland Middle School (SMS) advisory (2005-2009), from study halls for all to enrichment advisory options, including chess, for capable students. Dr. Root also lists chess activities and chess equipment used at SMS and at MOSAIC (Coppell Gifted Association summer courses). For my next article for TEMPO, I will share how gifted and talented teachers use chess in their classrooms. If you teach gifted-and-talented students, and would like to share your chess-in-the-classroom story, please email me, Dr. Alexey Root, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
