GREAT MOVES: LEARNING CHESS THROUGH HISTORY
The National Scholastic Chess Foundation is presenting chess instruction that teaches chess along with its historical development on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Ethel M. Gordon Oakland Park Library. The class is open to all students grades 5-12 and to interested adults. There is no pre-requisite other than a reading level of 5th grade or above. NSCF Senior Instructor Chris Goldthorpe, will offer a 10-week class featuring lectures, chess problem-solving, fun games and competitive play. (Find out more about the book at www.GreatMovesChess.org.)
Please note: This is a class. You are signing up for 10 classes running from March 5 through May 14, 2019. NO CLASS ON MARCH 26 (BCPS Spring Break). Please do not sign up if you cannot reasonably make this commitment. We understand sometimes something will happen that changes this, but the classes are built so that there is a progression to the instruction so students actually see improvement in their chess ability and in their understanding of how chess relates to other academics and life activities.
These classes are free thanks to the generous support of Friends of the Ethel M. Gordon Oakland Park Library.
