Using Studies to Teach

I have used this beautiful study to show students how to plan for forks. I find it amazing that kids can be given the main themes of an extremely difficult study and be able to understand the main concepts. Finding the correct solution is almost impossible for these kids, but with some help some of them can work it out, while others benefit from the simple nature, and repetition of the themes. And at the end of the solution there is the useful technique of queen against king a pawn.

It is White to play and draw, I'll post the solution with my next post, tomorrow or the day after. :)
