Dr. Alexey Root had Denton High School students try to solve a ninth-century chess problem, published in her book People, Places, Checkmates: Teaching Social Studies with Chess. While experienced students worked on that problem, Dr. Root taught two beginners the two-rook checkmate, the Pawn Game, and the knight’s tour. Among other places, lesson plans for those chess drills can be found in Dr. Root’s Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators and Science, Math, Checkmate: 32 Chess Activities for Inquiry and Problem Solving.
