TR-2 as Coach and Pc: Section 2

Page 2 of 3: Drill 2

Place a real doll or teddy bear or something in front of you to be a terminal you can say things to. Don't just talk out into open space and imagine someone or something there.

  1. You will play the part of the coach.

  2. This is Drill 2.

  3. Say aloud "TR2. Start!"

  4. Click Item 1a. You will hear the pc giving a line from Alice. Click Item 1b. You will then hear the student giving an "acknowledgement" to that item. As coach, decide if this ack ends the cycle of communication or not, and grade the student's ack accordingly. Close the movie windows.

  5. If it was OK, say aloud "Good", and click the appropriate coach grading link.

  6. If the ack was not OK, say aloud "Flunk. It didn't end the cycle. Start" and click the appropriate coach grading link.

  7. Your coaching action will be graded, and you will see either a "Correct Coaching Action" or "Incorrect Coaching Action" screen. Close this coaching window.

  8. Continue through the twenty items in sequence.

  9. Do the twenty lines again, in sequence, but with you giving the lines instead of clicking on 1a, 2a etc. Still click on 1b, 2b etc. to hear the student's acks. (You will get to do the acks when you are a student on TR-2, not a coach). Grade the student's ack each time aloud and by clicking on the appropriate link.

  10. Go on to Drill 3.

Alice List 5:

"How queer it seems to be going messages for a rabbit".
"Miss Alice! Come here directly, and get ready for your walk".
"But I've got to see that the mouse doesn't get out".
"I know something interesting is sure to happen".

"I do hope it'll make me grow large again, for really I'm quite tired of being such a tiny little thing!"
"That's quite enough--I hope I shan't grow any more".
"As it is, I can't get out at the door".
"I do wish I hadn't drunk quite so much".
"Now I can do no more, whatever happens".

"What will become of me?"
"It was much pleasanter at home".
"I almost wish I hadn't gone down that rabbit-hole".
"And when I grow up, I'll write one--but I'm grown up now".
"Shall I never get any older than I am now?"

"Oh, I shouldn't like that!"
"Oh, you foolish Alice!"
"How can you learn lessons in here?"
"Why, there's hardly room for you, and no room at all for any lesson-books!"
"Then I'll go round and get in at the window".
