Chess Program Update!!!
LLI offers about 30 students from our Kids’ Center chess classes three times a week. That’s 12 classes a month, where our students are putting their minds to work!
The Chess Program will soon be ready for a new set of kids to begin our improved Module 1 class, for beginners to the game. The new Module 1 chess curriculum includes lesson plans, fun fill-in-the-blank exams, and kid-friendly handouts. It will get our LLI students to improve note-taking, problem solving, and critical thinking skills. The Chess Program currently has two modules of chess for beginners and those advanced in the game, and we will be working on a module 3, which is coming soon.
We want to give a huge shout out to Nate Palmer for all his hard work teaching our Module 1 chess classes for the month of June!
