The ACBL has the most current manual for teaching kids on their site. This site has some materials to support that effort. The ACBL Education foundation sponsors bridge classes in the schools. Click here for more information from the ACBL.
My gosh, this is indeed a neat thing to do–provide lessons for young children, a guide for parents or grandparents to teach their kids bridge.
I blogged about just this topic last spring when someone in the audience I spoke to about my book about sociable bridge, told how her mother taught all the kids bridge before the got into school, and later taught her grandchildren.
I had no idea there were teaching materials available for parents.
Did you really teach Bill how to play bridge ? Nice job !
Thanks Lurpo for the praise on my bridge teaching prowess, however it was purely a fine work of fiction. The author did ask my permission to use me in his charming article at Bridge Winners
What I find. I am so glad I found you. I looked at a couple of other sites and they just didn’t inspire me to learn how and maybe teach bridge. My doctor has recommended that I take it up to help with my depression and other reasons. So here I go. Thank you so much
Thank you Sharon, bridge is a wonderful game that is endlessly interesting and never completely mastered. great for the brain! Good luck with your learming
I’m trying to find the posters. I saw the posters under ‘For Bridge Teachers’ and the fine print underneath said ‘available in Downloads.’ But, when I went to the Downloads tab I was unable to find the posters. We have recently begun teaching Middle School bridge and I was hoping to take the posters as visual aids. But I can’t figure a way to find/print the posters. We are using your material http://web2.acbl.org/documentlibrary/teachers/SBLSTeacherManual.pdf
Thanks so much for making your material available. Invaluable.
Hi Bob – somehow the new version of wordpress has lost my downloads module. While I work to restore it, this old URL (found via googling) still works:
Allowed HTML: <a> <abbr> <acronym> <b> <blockquote> <cite> <code> <del> <em> <i> <q> <strike> <strong> For suit symbols put a ! in front of the letter for the suit in caps (e.g. !S for
the spade symbol).
Didn't find any related posts :(
The mission of this site is to assist other bridge teachers by providing free materials, tips, and discussions, as well as to help beginning and intermediate players learn bridge.
