Ever wondered how to play chess? Ever wanted to know how to introduce chess into your classroom / school? Would you like to make chess easy and fun for everyone?
This course is for you. Over the course of three 45-minute webinars, we’ll introduce you in a very gentle way to how the pieces move, how to play
different mini-games that you can teach your class (Junior Infants up!), and how to organise your class chess lessons. We’ll suggest great ways that chess can be used to enhance your teaching at all levels.
