CRITICAL THINKING THROUGH CHESS PROGRAM FOR YOUR SCHOOL OR HOME
WHAT'S A CHESSATHALON?
Some call it field day, some call it May day. Image joining chess puzzles like checkmate in one move; with a timed obstacle course you would run during a field day event. Participants will race against the clock to complete a series of obstacles and checkmate puzzles! Now wouldn't that be fun?
Well we thought it would be a blast, so here it is!

Can the parents sit in on classes too?
We not only encourage it, we expect it. We realize that home schooling families are used to a very hands on approach to the educational process. You may not have the level of expertise as our chess coaches do so we prefer to look at our classes as a way to bring parent and child together introducing valuable information to the child and pointers to better instruct for the parent.
Is there homework?
There are homework assignments but not necessarily in the traditional since. Assignments could be anything from finding all of your classmate’s geographic locations on a map, enabling parent and child to explore the world of geography together, or assigning number value to chess pieces allowing parent and child to explore mathematics. Our aim is to be as creative as possible and bring excitement and a feeling of adventure to home learning.
Do we need a webcam?
We’d like to create a since of community amongst "Chessologists" so we strongly recommend it; socialization is very much a tangible. It would be great if students traded ideas and help one another in and outside of the classroom.
How do I get in the classroom?
You'll receive an email link minutes before class.
Is there any spamming in the class room?
Students are given constant access to text chat for posing and answering questions but the class atmosphere is one that makes it very unlikely for behaviors not conducive to learning as individual identity is also constantly acknowledged.
What's class like?
Your child will receive detailed lessons, become familiar, and play chess with the same classmates during your one-hour, weekly class. The general class format consists of one half hour of lesson and one half hour of game play. Students get to enjoy using what they have learned from the very first class. There are aspects of the class where we will not adhere to this format, such as game show contests, the algebraic races, and special invited guests.
In the first half hour of class students will interact, exchange debate with one another during the group lesson. Our online curriculum is the same as our classroom curriculum.
What happens once I've signed up for classes?
Once you have completed your registration you are confirmed for your regularly scheduled one-hour weekly class. This class will be the same set time and day of the week. You will be billed for your next month should you choose to continue, simply reconcile your payment and enjoy!
