Chess for Educators chess has the rare quality that children love it despite the fact that it is good for

them. Playing chess is just like life: you have to make plans, take decisions, be creative, deal with

challenges, handle disappointments, interact with others and evaluate your actions.

Playing chess is just like life


In this guide, psychologist and chess teacher Karel van Delft provides access to the underlying

scientific research and presents the best didactical methods. Van Delft has created a dependable

toolkit for teachers and scholastic chess organizers.

Karel van Delft


Chess for Educators this is not a book on chess rules and moves, but it points the way to where good

technical chess improvement content can be found. Van Delft offers a wealth of practical advice on

the most effective didactics in order for kids to build critical life skills through learning chess.


Karel van Delft is a Dutch chess teacher and chess organizer. He holds a Master’s degree in

Psychology of the University of Amsterdam and has lectured and published widely on the subject of

the benefits of chess in education.

Chess Teaching Program


“More than 260 pages of pure motivation and inspiration. While other school chess books focus on

concrete lessons, Karel van Delft provides insight into everything else that should be in the chess

teacher’s school bag (chess and autism, chess and girls, chess as social and therapeutic tool, the role

of the parents…).



The author strikes a wonderful balance between practical tips and scientific foundation. You can use

some pages as a checklist, on the other hand the references to scientific works can make any school

headmaster realise that chess really belongs in the classroom. And isn’t that exactly what we need to

spread chess in schools?”
