This book is intended for elementary and primary teachers who wish to introduce the study of chess in their classroom as a developmental tool. The benefit is improved focus, extended attention span, and an activated mental state of higher perception. The teacher who recognizes those things will also notice students’ increased awareness in other content areas.
It is my hope that when you begin to use this book, you will gain insight with regard to chess instruction, and apply that to other content areas. While there are many successful classrooms, I think you will agree that “The classroom with chess is exceptional!”
