description & information:
By NM Todd Bardwick
THE "CHESS DETECTIVE'S" INTRODUCTION TO THE ROYAL GAME . . . This book is a fun, comprehensive workbook and instruction book for children (and adults!) who are new to chess or who are in the beginning stages of learning to play the game. Ten basic chess lessons and chess rules are presented in detail along with chess puzzles and chess word searches. In addition, two hundred problems with a comprehensive answer key are given at two skill levels: Basset Hound (beginner) and Ches Detective (intermediate). Chess Workbook for Children is designed as a companion workbook to the teacher's book, "Teaching Chess in the 21st Century - Strategies and Connections to a Standards-Based World." Teaching Chess in the 21st Century outlines a beginner chess course for classroom use by the teacher and compares chess with a sample 2nd grade math curriculum, emphasizing the overlap with National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards. However, Chess Workbook for Children can be used as a stand alone workbook or together with the teacher's guide "Teaching in the 21st Century." With fun and entertaining illustrations and real-life analogies that children can easily relate to, this outstanding book is a must for the beginner chess student!
