The Teachers Resource Pack

This was first produced in the 1990s and was completely revised in 2013. It is now available as an ebook, free to schools for their own use. It is a complete bridge learning programme, taking children who are complete beginners through the language of bridge, Minibridge, declarer play, defence and bidding. Lessons are in manageable sizes to allow for short lessons such as lunch breaks. There are also plenty of play hands and other exercises. For the teacher there are teachers notes with each topic and also some guidance on how to run small competitions when your students progress that far. To obtain an electronic copy of the Teachers Resource Pack please contact Lisa Miller.
