about adding chess classes to your school's
enrichment program? We hope you will consider
Renaissance Knights, Illinois' premier chess
organization. At Renaissance Knights, we do more
than teach the game of chess; we help children build
skills that lead to academic success. Classes are
structured, well-managed, and designed to build a
child's confidence, as well as a love for the game
that will last a lifetime.
We employ a unique teaching
methodology that puts the emphasis on skill-building
and positive reinforcement rather than memorization.
Students learn to focus, think creatively, and
consider all their options before they make a
choice. Reasoning, problem solving, and analysis of
steps and missteps are all part of the process that
leads to confidence and good judgment.
We use chess as a learning tool
to teach higher-order thinking skills, problem
solving skills, advanced math and reading skills,
behavioral and social skills, self-directional
skills and build self-esteem in students. Our
researched-based programs cultivate progressive
learning for 21st century students. The skills
the students acquire are imperative for students to
succeed in school and for their future success in
the global information society.
