Page 3 of 3: Drill 3

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. This is Drill 3. It is a very short drill.

  2. Say Line 1 from the Alice list: "How queer it seems to be going messages for a rabbit".

  3. Click on Ack 1. We will assume it is an acceptable ack to the line you gave. Then say to the student, "What did I just say?". Click "Next 1". The student will give back the line you just gave. Say "Good".

  4. Yeah, yeah, it's a bit silly. At least you are not going to be graded on doing these steps correctly. And it is very silly if you give a different line and the computer gives you back the wrong line. Ha ha.

  5. But this is to get you into the swing of at least asking this question, as it is part of the regular TR-2 drilling.

  6. Do it twice more with lines two and three.

  7. Then go on to the Student Drills.

Things to Click:


From Alice List 5:

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