TEACHERS WILL LOVE THIS! These intermediate hands are designed to help the student develop proper thinking habits as the bidding play and defense progresses. Each student is involved one way or another in most every hand. I use these hands exclusively when I teach and the feed back has been unbelievable. You will never have to worry about having good hands for your classes again. And everything you should be telling your students is right there in the commentaries sections. All the teacher has to do is look over the hands before presenting them to the class. The hands cover a variety of themes, all dealing with 'thinking bridge'. These hands are applicable with any bidding system. There is also a list of suggestions as to how best to teach with these hands. The hands come in groups of 10, and all 100 cost $50.00. However, I will email you hands 1-10, including the method I use to teach with these hands. If you like what you see and want to purchase more hands, the price for the first 10 ($10.00) will be included in the next purchase. I can send these hands via email attachment in 'Word' or hard copy in a spiral bound book or both for the same price. The price for 100 is $50.00. There is now a Thinking Bridge II - Hands 101-200 and Thinking Bridge III - Hands 201-300. Each set comes with a 'Theme' page making it easier for the teacher to group the hands if desired.
