The book is well structured and is set up as 108 simple lesson plans with the school teacher in mind. What makes this book particularly unique is how it weaves the learning into a Traditional Martial Art Syllabus from White-Yellow-Orange-Green-Blue-Purple-Brown-Black Belt. Each Belt (Bandana) course content is well thought out to enable a teacher, or the private reading student, to complete each Belt within 5 Hours followed by a 1 Hour Test available at www.CharlieChess.com.
Now the real selling point to the book: Each time a student passes a test (tests have been researched to be challenging to the child's ability) he is mailed a Bandana & Certificate from CharlieChess Head office. With the net result the kids are highly motivated to develop their chess skills and the teacher leaves all the production of the Bandanas to our Head Office, the teacher has nothing else to do but apply the simple lesson plans and can quickly see each student's ability guaged by what colour Bandana each student is wearing. Any person acquiring the Black Bandana also attains the Teaching Certificate on completion of a C.R.B Police check.This Stllabus is recognised in many British Schools and is part of a chess cafe network.
