Root_-_People__Places_AmazonChess sometimes has its own place in the curriculum. Sometimes, since "échecs et maths" began in Quebec in the 1970s-1980s, it appears in the curriculum through other subjects.

In the last few years WIM Dr Alexey Root, a Senior Lecturer for The University of Texas at Dallas, has been working on introducing chess throughout the curriculum. She has produced specific ideas for use in classes teaching Geography, History, Language, Mathematics, Reading, Science, Writing ...

Amazon have a "Look Inside" facility so that you can read some of the content of each of her books. Here are the links:

I suggest that you start with Children & Chess: A Guide for Educators since this gives an excellent overview. Then move on to the others, perhaps in the order of publication: Science, Math, Checkmate (2008), Read, Write, Checkmate (2009) and People, Places, Checkmates (2010). There is also a book The Living Chess Game: Fine Arts Activities for Kids 9-14.

We are also aware of Leah Martin-Dagher's work - see Classroom Chess: The Primary Teacher's Handbook.

If you know of other work in this area, please contact us with details.
