Book DescriptionIncludes all 3 Books of the Teaching Chess - Step By Step from the Kasparov Chess Foundation!

BOOK #1 - TEACHER'S MANUAL
The most thorough and complete curriculum for teaching chess!

Few materials exist to help the classroom teacher who has never played chess or knows only some chess. This manual was designed to address this deficiency. It is written in a manner that allows the teacher to see how to present the material in his or her classroom. This manual will lead a group of beginning students from the rudiments of chess rules to the ability of playing a full game in a competent manner.

BOOK #2 - EXERCISES
This book is designed to be a companion of Book 1, Teaching Chess Step by Step Teacher s Manual. It contains a series of exercises designed to reinforce the knowledge that children gain from the teacher s presentations in the classroom. The exercises were designed for K-12 beginners and require a minimum of explanation. The solution may be written in chess notation or drawn on the board. The teacher can use the exercises for presentation in class or as homework. They are designed for individual or group use. With respect to homework, it is advised that during the class the teacher shows some examples that are slightly modified versions of the exercises in the book, so the children will gain some understanding of the subject matter and what is asked of them.

BOOK #3 - ACTIVITIES
The activities in third book in the series are the fun way to reinforce the rules and principles of good chess. Full color cartoon characters, are combined with pages that the young student can color, all designed to help the student understand the rules, principles and even the etiquette of the game of chess.
