I wrote this curriculum guide for Go based on the experiences and the insights that I gained as a classroom teacher, a principal of a school, a central office administrator, and as a superintendent of schools. Many educators shared generously with me their expertise in curriculum development. To these administrators and teachers, I appreciate your enthusiasm and your generosity. I also congratulate you on the excellent work you have done to improve teaching and learning, and for your courage to pave the way for others.

I would like to acknowledge Dr. Carolyn Chapman, professor emerita of educational leadership at the University of Nevada, Reno for her patience and guidance during my career as an educator.

I am indebted to the work the following educators have provided insights into the area of brain research in education and the various theories they have developed based on findings in neuroscience: Eric Jensen, Barbara Given, Patricia Wolfe, Robert Sylwester, and John Barell. I also acknowledge a debt to the theoretical and philosophical projects of Richard Dawkins (Dawkins 1976), Antonio Demasio (Damasio 1994), Daniel Dennett (Dennett 1991), Julian Jaynes (Jaynes 1976), Stephen Pinker (Pinker 1997), and John R. Searle (Searle 2004).

I used SmartGo Player® for making all of the illustrations of board positions.

Finally I would like to thank other Go educators for the insights they provided for me to create this document. Among these Go educators were Sensei’s Library (, Milton Bradley, Bill Cobb, Sasha Orr, Susan Weir, Janice Kim, Jeong Soo-hyun, Kyung-Hee Ballard, Ma Dong (6d), Dr. Steve Stringfellow (6d), Jon Boley (5d), Kano Yoshinori, Ikuro Ishigure, Toshiro Kageyama, Yasutoshi Yasuda (9d), Li Yi (1k), Otake Hideo, and Jie Li (7d). I extend special recognition to the following Go players who assisted me in gathering information about the print resources for Go on page 19 and following:

Electronic resources:

Mike Malveaux (Tacoma Go Club), 6k; Dennis Wheeler (AGA) 13k; Mike LePore (AGA) 2d.
