FREE CHESS CLASSES AT LIBRARY PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Mon, Sep 05 2011 (22:27)
Alexey Root with bookI am teaching another series of chess classes at the Denton Public Library, North Branch. Classes are for children ages 5-14, start September 16 (2-3:30 p.m.), and run for six Fridays. This series of classes is called Thinking with Chess. The challenges and puzzles in the Thinking with Chess classes emphasize skills important for academics, such as classifying, pattern recognition, decoding, creating, and predicting. Children will try challenges such as "four in a row" and guessing a mystery chessman. They will also solve checkmates in one move. There will be time to play games of chess too. No previous chess experience is required to participate.

Activities from the chess classes that I previously taught at the Denton Public Library in are now part of my book The Living Chess Game: Fine Arts Activities for Kids 9-14 (Libraries Unlimited, 2011).

 
UT DALLAS CHESS PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Fri, Aug 26 2011 (12:46)

I attended the first meeting of the UT Dallas chess club for 2011-2012. I spoke about the Chess Online courses. There is still time to register, as the courses officially begin October 24. Although many students who take the Chess Online courses are not chess players, each semester I have a handful of chess team members as students too. When chess team members take the courses, they analyze games for their classmates (as suggested by IM Salvijus Bercys.) I enjoyed seeing my former students Bercys, GM Julio Sadorra, GM Cristian Chirila, and FM Tyler Hughes; as well as WFM Saheli Nath, whose research I supervised. I also liked meeting my current student WFM Patrycja Labedz.
