Dr. Alexey Root was interviewed for an article about chess in the January 22, 2015 Deseret News. The article’s author, Eric Schulzke, wrote, “One educator who has taken this head on is Alexey Root, a former U.S. women's chess champion who teaches a chess education class at the University of Texas at Dallas.

In addition to her online education courses, Root's six books offer curriculum planning ideas for integrating chess into language and writing; math and science; visual arts; and the study of history, culture and geography.” There is more about Root, and about chess, in the article.
