Today's topic at Denton HIgh School chess club was the King and Pawn vs. King draw and the Philidor's rook endgame. In each case, students tried the positions with partners then Dr. Root showed the correct patterns on the demonstration board. She also showed how the endgames are related to each other. This chess content is covered in People, Places, Checkmates: Teaching Social Studies with Chess. After learning these endgames, students had 15 minutes to play for fun.
