These words, which I am ordering you today, are to be on your heart; and you are to teach them carefully to your children. You are to talk about them when you sit at home, when you are traveling on the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Grandmaster Chess Project to Show How Chess Makes You Smart
Published: January 23rd, 2013
Boris Gelfand, Israeli chess grandmaster, and the University of Haifa have teamed up to prove that chess can make you smarter and better adjusted. The Grandmaster Chess Research Project will investigate the role chess-playing skills can contribute to social and scientific development, and made lead to the development of Hebrew-language educational products teaching and drawing on chess as a way to enhance cognitive abilities. According to a report by Israel21c, the project will examine how chess players achieve in the fields of language, math, and other academic arenas. The report states that numerous studies on the benefits of chess have already shown that the game improves reading abilities, and is associated with higher grades in school, as well as improved concentration, self-discipline, logic, and other behaviors.
``Learning to Think Project,'' which trained 100,000 teachers to teach thinking skills and involved a sample of 4,266 second grade students, reached a general conclusion that chess, methodologically taught, is an incentive system sufficient to accelerate the increase of IQ in elementary age children of both sexes at all socio-economic levels.
