Chess for Social & Cognitive Skills is like no other summer course as it is extremely hands-on and teacher-centred. Chess is a growing pastime in Irish primary schools with the 350 schools now joined the Ficheall network of teachers promoting chess in primary schools. It is an excellent hobby for students and teachers for rainy days and promotes a variety of social and cognitive skills such as respect, forward planning, problem solving, decision making, accepting defeat, understanding resilience and developing a productive disposition to problem solving; all of which are addressed in the free beginner lessons available to participants.
Teachers will have the opportunity to learn how to play chess by playing chess mini-games against other novice teachers. The course will teach all participants:
Dates: Monday 3rd to Friday 7th July inclusive.
Time: 9.30 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. daily (20 hrs in total)
Lunch: A light lunch will be provided, daily, at 11.30 a.m.
Facilitated by: Eamonn Barrett
