To improve chess skills and prepare to compete in tournaments representing The Dock Street School. As an academic pursuit, chess rewards nontraditional learners as well as traditional ones. In particular, chess is three-dimensional and interactive, and thus supportive of those types of learners. The game is also an authentic pursuit which is a prerequisite for deep, meaningful learning.
