Through the game of chess, my students will learn how to think logically and efficiently , by making the best choice from a number of options. This game will challenge my students to strive for excellence. Chess will engage boys and girls, regardless of their natural abilities or socio-economic backgrounds. The game of chess will also provide practice at making accurate and fast decisions under time pressure, a skill that can help improve test scores at school. It can also enhance reading, memory, language and mathematical abilities. My gifted students will develop higher level thinking skills while learning a game of strategy.
