TR-3 as Coach and Pc: Section 3

Page 1 of 3: Drill 1

Have a real doll or teddy bear or something in front of you to be a terminal you can say things to. The emphasis in this drill is on the student/auditor duplicating the exact words of the auditing question.

It is fairly easy to remember the question or command if all you have your attention on is giving the command, maybe giving the repeat statement, and then saying the command again. It gets more difficult if you get tied up in a long TR-4 cycle, or your attention is on the boil on your nose or the coffee stain on your shirt that the pc just noticed, or something like that. It is also easier with a very familiar question with no variations like "Do birds fly?" or "Do fish swim?", and not so easy with something like "Look around the room and find something your ____ couldn't have" when there are various choices for the blank.

  1. As coach, say aloud "TR-3. Start!"

  2. Click on "Item 01a". The student/auditor will give the question "Do birds fly?" or "Do fish swim?".

  3. Give a long, involved answer to this question. Then click on "01b". The student will give an acknowledgement, then will give the question "Do birds fly?" or "Do fish swim?". This will be right or wrong, depending on what the question was in the first place.

  4. Grade the student's action in the usual way, by saying aloud either "Good" or "Flunk", and by clicking on the appropriate link. You will be graded on your coaching action with a "Correct" or "Incorrect" window. Close out all the open screens/windows for Item 01 as usual.

  5. Handle the other items similarly. For the first ten, give an involved answer to the question. For the second ten, give an involved no-answer to the question, as the student will say, "I'll repeat the auditing question..." rather than giving an ack.

  6. You will have to work at this one to make the drill useful. This drill as written is really an exercise in spanning attention, so that you can still remember what the command is supposed to be when your attention is also tied up in your response. If your response is so simple that it doesn't take much attention at all, then the drill will be pointless. If your response is so complex, maybe involving sophisticated mental calculations or feats of memory, that you even forget what drill you're doing, then you would be overdoing it a bit. So adjust your responses so that you benefit from doing this drill!

  7. Repeat these items if you wish.
