INSIGHTS ON TEACHING CHESS TO THE COMMUNITY

William M Bart

Resumo


The purpose of this study was to present insights on teaching chess to the community.  Schools (grades K-12), colleges and universities (grades 13 and above), elderly settings, clinical groups, and correctional facilities are the five segments of the community to be featured in this report. Insights on teaching chess in each of those segments of the community are presented as well as recommendations for chess practice and teaching that emanate from the insights. Among the insights and subsequent recommendations to be presented are the following. Regarding teaching in the schools, one insight is that students respond favorably to playing against artificial opponents on a computer. A recommendation is to use chess technology including chess-related websites in schools where appropriate. Regarding teaching chess in colleges and universities, one insight is that undergraduates respond favorably to computer-based instruction. A recommendation is to employ chess technology in chess instruction in colleges and universities. Regarding teaching chess in elderly settings, one insight is that the elderly tend to be very social. A recommendation is to teach the elderly in a group-based manner. How and in what ways one teaches chess in the community depends upon the segment of the community in which the chess instruction is to occur.
