references about bridge in education
Posted 2012-February-16, 04:02
i'm looking to apply for financing for teaching bridge in the university and i'm searching (without much luck) for examples and best practices of using bridge in education. I know or i've heard that bridge is taught in Poland and in some schools in France and i think in Israel but i can't seem to find useful materials (in English or French) to prove that. Can you help me with such references from your country?

thanks, i've seen the site but they are providing resources for teaching. I'm mostly interested in for example a list of schools where bridge is taught or a national curricula that says to whom bridge is taught to or some report that says where bridge has been taught in school and which were the results

There's some stuff here http://www.ebu.co.uk...ssresources.htm about the benefits of teaching bridge in schools, if that helps.

They now run a University League on BBO that is currently only U.S. but would highlight the interaction and competition available to you once you are underway. Lots of opportunity to set up challenge matches.
The rest of the material is aimed at younger players but still shows the benefits.
I'm about to start mini-tournaments, 6 hands Simultaneous pairs style matchpointed across the field for the little ones and will include a mini-bridge division. Once I get my database set up to handle volume, all comers will be welcome.
Anyone who is interested, drop me a note.
