Chess for Success

(The video newscast is disabled for this preview.)


1. What are your experiences with chess? Would you consider learning how to play chess? Why or why not?

2. Michael Omoyele was inspired to play chess because he saw how others used the game to escape poverty. What can we take away from Michael’s story?

3. What other board games do you think require strategy and tactics? How so?


Students will be able to determine the importance of goal setting using multimedia sources to complete a “3-2-1 Prompt” (3 areas of growth, 2 S.M.A.R.T. goals, and 1 Action Plan).
