Book DescriptionThe 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.

offers hope to millions of US students through chess education. We're developing a complete chess curriculum for public and private schools, from K through 12, that delivers much more than a strong end-game to students. Because when a child feels a sense of accomplishment, it carries through in everything that child does. Our in-school and extra curricular programs are designed to do exactly that - encourage creativity, instill self-discipline and bring hope and a feeling of accomplishment to millions of children.
The Kasparov Chess Foundation also sponsors tournaments for those students who are attracted to the competitive and social aspects of chess, while encouraging our youth to strive for higher levels of intellectual achievement. And, while delivering an approved in-the-school chess curricular is a primary focus for the Foundation, it is just the crown to the King. Delivering invaluable enrichment programs, such as after-school clubs, chess camps and awards programs, as well as a gifted program for advanced students, are all part of the bigger picture for Kasparov Chess Foundation.
