Cool video - The chess strategy for children's education

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

We found this real cool video at this link. It's about Wendi Fischer, executive director of America's Foundation for Chess, who has become a celebrity among the elementary school set. It's not the first initiative to teach chess to elementary students. Since 1986, Chess-in-the-Schools has taught the game to low-income students in New York City Public Schools. No one keeps track of how many teachers use the board game as a teaching tool, though plenty of books are available to help them. The foundation, based in Bellevue, Wash., aims to expand First Move nationally and beyond.
