My husband IM Doug Root is playing in the U.S. Open. Tonight, thanks to MonRoi, my children and I are watching Doug's round 2 game live. It's fun to be able to see the game without having to drive 45 minutes to watch in person. I wasn't sure what Doug would play for his 16th move, but both Clarissa (age 15) and William (age 11) guessed 16. Bxf6. They were right. After move 18, we entered the game moves into Fritz. From move 18 on, we have compared what Fritz recommends to what's actually been played.

The Barnes & Noble book release party for Breaking Dawn ended up being a busy night for the seven Denton Chess Club volunteers, who played about 40 games against the public. Look for a full report, with photos, in a future issue of Chess Life magazine.

On August 2nd, at 12:01 a.m., is the release of the best-seller Breaking Dawn. Because Breaking Dawn has a chess queen and a chess pawn on its cover, my local Barnes and Noble is having a chess event Friday night leading up to the release. From 10-10:30 p.m. I will play chess and sign my books Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators and Science, Math, Checkmate: 32 Chess Activities for Inquiry and Problem Solving. Then, from 10:30-11:30 p.m., members of the Denton Chess Club play against all challengers. At 11:30 p.m., everyone gets in line to buy Breaking Dawn.

Monday night, July 28th, at Denton Chess Club I remembered to tell Justin, the HS teacher mentioned in my previous blog, about the USCF Chess in Education workshop. I learned from Justin that his high school students signed up for a school year of chess. Chess instruction will be during homerooms with him or with his chess colleague, a computer teacher. Because the same students will attend chess homerooms everyday, lessons should build on the previous day's learning. Luckily, there are two free curricula available that guide educators and students,

CHESS IN HIGH SCHOOL; CHESS WORKSHOP PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Tue, Jul 22 2008 (05:55)
Last night at Denton Chess Club, Justin, a physics teacher and football/basketball/tennis coach at Whitesboro high school, visited. He wanted ideas for his club, in which 20 students have expressed an interest. Although Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators and Science, Math, Checkmate: 32 Chess Activities for Inquiry and Problem Solving are written for educators of grades 3-8, adaptations of ideas from those books for high school students are easily made. I also recommended a chess ladder. My favorite article about how to run a ladder is in Jennifer Shahade's interview of Elizabeth Vicary. I forgot to tell Justin about the August 7, 2008 USCF Chess in Education workshop. The deadline for early registration for the
