Virtual Programs on Zoom
Our virtual chess class is where we will continue to foster patience, strategic planning and critical thinking skills. Our time will be spent on principles of the opening, tactical elements of the middle game, and basic endgame situations. Although we are unable to see the enthusiastic/smiling faces of our students live, the plus is that we have enhanced our teachings through visual aids (on the computer) that would not be available otherwise (live).
Our lessons are fun/interactive, include digital versions of our exclusive workbooks, free entry into our weekly online chess tournament, and cater to all levels. Underlying, we also convey the belief that are decisions result in consequences. We will also create a private club room (on chess.com-a free acct. is needed) where kids can practice throughout the week and challenge each other after the lesson.
No Class 4/7
Learn to Code: Virtual Game Design with Scratch
Students will use the program Multimedia Scratch to create their own 2D Platform game. Levels will be fully designed from background to characters and then programmed using a series of if/then statements. The final product will be a fully functional game with lives, enemies, and goals.
This class will be taught by Ross School’s Media Integration Teacher, Lucas Leonardo.
No Class 4/8
