The class consists of instruction time and practice time. A one hour class usually consists of 30 minutes of instruction and 30 minutes of practice. Different methods will be used in order to teach different concepts including worksheets and practice time. Students will learn opening moves, middle game and end game. They will work on tactics such as pins, forks, skewers, double attacks, decoying and blockades. After learning the opening and middle game, during the endgame the student will learn how to checkmate the opponent's king to end the game.
