Features Training Methods, Chess in Schools, Exercises, Top Coaches Explain, the Benefits of Learning Chess, the Use of Computers & the Internet, Interviews, Tools, Reviews, etc. In the last decade there has been a phenomenal growth of chess within the educational community.

How do you teach chess? What material do you use? Is there a particularly successful method? How do you sell a chess curriculum, motivate your pupils, monitor progress? The Chess Instructor 2009 is the first publication to give comprehensive answers to all questions of chess teachers and parents. It provides tools and methodologies for beginners as well as for more advanced coaching. With ready-to-use teaching exercises for all levels.

exelent book for instructors and non instructuctors Jan 14, 2010
lately i have been doing my litle bit to promote the game ilove so much by teaching novice players[free of charge].as such im looking for ideas to improve my teaching metods for the benefit off my students,and why not my own, as a current1760 player i know i have a lot to learn.this book is a collection of articles by world renow ned trainers and has a lot off usesfull ideas.for example,we all know that until you get to a certaing rating[ around 2000 i think]you should not worry to much whith the openings and instead concentrate on the midle game and some endings.yea,right,so why are most off us wasting our time trying to memorise opening lines? well because everybody is doing it,so it must be rigth.but when you see dvoretsky categorigaly state that such aproach[concentration on the opnings]is wrong,wrong, you really sit up and pay attention.even iff you dont have any students,you probably are a trainer ...off yourself,so you ought to take a look at this book.i consider my money well spent and im looking forward to the nexth book in the series.
Hope sometimes disappoints... Apr 25, 2009
The Chess Instructor is not that instructive. I coach and supervise a school club of 70 students from 1-5 grades. I looked and look for books on authors who have had similar experience and lessons to share. This is our first year of operation, and the club comprises nearly 25 percent of the school population. For a non-video, non-WII intellectual exercise, chess absorbs and motivates in ways surprising. This book simply is not what I looked for.
