On page 9 of People, Places, Checkmates: Teaching Social Studies with Chess is a chart of basic checkmates (endgames). For chess club on October 1, 2010, I had one student teach K and Q vs. K, another teach K and R vs. K and a third teach K and P vs. K and force promotion to a R or Q. When each teacher had trained another student sufficiently well to take over his teaching job, the teacher moved on to teach a harder checkmate on the chart. For more details about today’s meeting of the Denton High School chess club see the meeting minutes.
