We have launched a fundraiser at GoFundME to create a freely accessible online chess curriculum that focuses on using chess as a tool for teaching problem solving and critical thinking skills. A curriculum that can be used in classrooms, home-schooling, libraries, institutions, etc. with complete course work, exercises, and activities available to print out as worksheets and lessons. Along with a freely accessible online playing interface that offers real-time play, correspondence play, and various training features.This sounds like a very worthy project. Please donate or help to spread the word by sending your friends this link: http://www.gofundme.com/Chess-Curriculum.
