Tuesday, April 27, was our last chess club meeting of this 2010 spring semester. Two girls and five boys attended. To warm up for our May 1, 2010 tournament, we played touch-move ladder games. For more about how I run ladder games see the appendix to Read, Write, Checkmate: Enrich Literacy with Chess Activities. Or read Elizabeth Vicary interviewed by Jennifer Shahade (June 26,2007, Chess Life Online, "E. Vicary on Chess, Girls and Genius"), which is my source for how to run ladder chess games.
