Lesson Plans

Currently, the Chess for Success program is only offered in Oregon and SW Washington. We know that all children can benefit from the skills learned at the chess board. For this reason, we offer our lesson plans for sale online so that you may use them as a guide to implement a chess program at your school, to teach your own children, or simply to develop your skills.

The lesson plans are built so that a true beginner can teach a chess club. If you do not have previous experience, that is okay! Our program will guide you through chess instruction and allow you to learn as you go. The lesson plans include; an introduction, teaching procedures, the ethics of scholastic chess, characteristics of a good chess club advisor, tournament information and 30 lesson plans. The lesson plans are $50.00.
