Chess for Teachers

Chess for Teachers

Teachers will have the opportunity to learn how to play chess by playing mini chess games against other novice teachers.

The course will teach all participants how to play chess (from zero prior knowledge) and the best methods of teaching primary school children as young as first class the rules using a fun, games-based approach and how to utilise chess as an additional resource in teaching social skills in the mainstream and special education classroom.

This course will be held over 3 nights - 21 & 28 September and 05 October.

Learning Outcomes - 

  • To enjoy learning a new game and skill
  • To understand fully the rules of each piece and begin to understand check and checkmate
  • To know how to use the slides and methods experienced to teach the basics of chess to primary school students

Facilitator: Noel O'Connell

Noel has been teaching since 2015 in mainly senior mainstream classes. He has taught in my current school, Scoil Dean Cussen in Bruff, since 2017 which is a mixed school with c.240 children. He was the tutor for a summer course run through Tarbert Education Centre in July of this year which was entitled Chess for Social Skills.
