Cover of Read, Write, CheckmateI received my author’s copies of Read, Write Checkmate: Enrich Literacy with Chess Activities. Of my three books, this cover is my favorite. It shows tournament-style chess equipment. The boy in the emerald-green shirt is my son William. The photo is by Denton Chess Club President Michael Borys during a 2008 tournament at the Denton Public Library.

CHESS RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY PDF Print E-mail
Written by Alexey W. Root on Sat, Feb 28 2009 (12:29)
At the Chess Educator of the Year February 24, 2009 at The University of Texas at Dallas, honoree Dr. Stephen Lipschultz described the research grant: Think Like a King is partnering with The University of Texas at Dallas to apply for US Department of Education funding to establish the first ever large-scale multi-year research effort to, hopefully, fully validate and define the precise role of chess in education. In order to be really meaningful, this kind of study must involve large numbers of schools and students using a consistent approach to teaching that can also validate that kids learn what they are supposed to. If your school district is interested in being a part of this research, please email me < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it > by March 31, 2009.
