Mini games with Walter Raedler

More than one hundred school chess organisers and activists from the German speaking countries met in Bad Hersfeld, a spa town near Frankfurt, for the seventh German School Chess Congress. A dozen experts presented methods and ideas to improve chess instruction in the classroom as well as after school.  Stefan Loffler presided over a “game inventing workshop” and presented chess-related mathematical games and puzzles. Local kids were invited for lessons as by Walter Raedler on mini games  suitable for beginners.

A highlight of the meeting was the presentation of the Methodenkoffer, a unique collection of materials to enrich chess instruction. The box, which is sold by the Deutsche Schulschachstiftung for €170, will also be on display at the exhibition of chess instruction materials at the London Conference.
