Tuesday, September 18, 2012 was my first day of teaching chess at the extended day program at Greenhill School, Addison, TX. Chess runs from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. each Tuesday through November 13. Three groups (beginner, experienced, and advanced) rotated to me during the hour. Before I began teaching each group, I explained my expectation of their raising hands before they speak to allow everyone a chance to think without the answers being given away. I also mentioned that I will give a warning for inappropriate classroom behavior and that a second instance will mean that they need to go see the Chess Program Director. I had a demonstration board and, nearby, one chess set for every two children for the “practice” parts of my lesson plan. I had a pad to write my name and the agenda for Rook Day for each of the three groups. Each group spent about 15 minutes with me. When not with me, each group played chess games supervised by the Chess Program Director.

Chess Quotes


And for the chess-player the success which crowns his work, the great dispeller of sorrows, is named "combination."
