"Science, Math, Checkmate is a collection of 32 lesson plans designed to provide a practical link between chess instruction and national standards in elementary and middle school math and science instruction, with occasional forays into English and history. It is ground-breaking and valuable precisely because it accomplishes the critical important work described above: it sells chess by tying it to established educational standards."

Please see http://www.utdallas.edu/chess/education-camp/chess-in-education.html. Earlier in my career, I taught social studies and English in secondary schools. In public and private K-12 schools, after-school programs, recreation centers, camps, university courses, and private lessons, I have taught chess to over 2500 people.
