one of the ACBLís most successful programs. Established in 1986
by Audrey Grant, it demonstrates successful methods of teaching
the game of bridge and uses the ACBLís popular Bridge Series
texts and teacher manuals. These teaching methods can be used
with any teaching materials. Anyone successfully completing
this course is listed on the ACBLís teacher web site. The
cost of the program was partially
underwritten by the Unit 120 and the event coordinator was Beth
Rosenthal. The purpose of offering this special program is to
create a cadre of certified teachers in our area to teach in
schools and encourage interscholastic competition.
