Graduation 2010: The Chess Component of Critical Thinking.
Englehardt, Cathy Willis; Hauser, Brenda Bennett
This paper describes the chess program for elementary school students in the Daviess County School District, Kentucky. The Critical Thinking committee of the school system's Graduation 2010 initiative explored various ways to promote critical thinking in the classroom and arrived at a program to put chess boards in the classrooms and to encourage student, and teacher, participation. The program begins with kindergarten students. Because many teachers did not play chess themselves, the school district developed a manual and a teaching aid so that chess could be taught in the school. As implemented, the program is to be a 5-year curriculum plan with implementation through five stages. (SLD)
