IN PERSON: Exercise your brain using strategy, analysis and creative thinking while enjoying the "royal game" of chess. The competitive elements of the game will be suppressed in this course in favor of cooperation and exploring options. Course content will be based on the needs of individual participants. Most of our students have not played chess for decades, but find renewed joy in revisiting this great game. We will study the value and focus of each chess piece as it relates to the others. The element of competition will be mitigated as we explore ideas. Each class will be comprised of formal instruction followed by hands-on exercises. We will play in tandem, in pairs and individually. Each lesson is stand-alone, so missing a class will not impact participant progress. Homework is strictly voluntary, and involves solving challenging chess puzzles. The only mandate is to have fun while playing the game of chess. | Active Skill Learning.
