About the Course
Mr. Jarboe will be teaching this class 21-22. More information to come.
Chess, one of the oldest and most popular board games, is played by two opponents on a checkered board with specially designed pieces of contrasting colors, commonly white and black. White moves first, after which the players alternate turns in accordance with fixed rules, each player attempting to force the opponent’s principal piece, the King, into checkmate—a position where it is unable to avoid capture.
Besides just being a fun game, studies have shown that playing chess helps unleash your originality and problem solving skills. Chess activates both the left and right side of the brain at the same time which creates a better concentration for other school classes, which in turn can raise a student's grades and IQ.
