4th grade and older:
ACBL provides the textbook and a book bag to each student. At the end of the 8 lessons we have a small tournament in the class and the top student gets a trophy.
ACBL pays the bridge teacher a small stipend to help compensate for the time. So the class is free to the students! I’d love to start a class in your school if you have at least 8 students in the class. If you are in the greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area, I can probably fit you in to my schedule.
The classes are great as part of a math class or a gifted class. They would work wonderfully in an after school program as well. The classes are taught using the Bidding in the 21st Century series, which is a series of 8 two hour lessons. It works best as 2 hour lessons, but we can modify it to work as 16 one hour lessons as well. If you don’t live near me, contact ACBL to see if there is a teacher available in your area.
