TR-4 as Coach and Pc: Section 2

Page 2 of 3: Drill 2

Have a real doll or teddy bear or something in front of you as usual.

  1. Assume there have been a few normal "Do birds fly?--Yes--Good" exchanges already.

  2. This is Drill 2. It is a continuation on from the cycle covered in Drill 1. The student asked "Do birds fly?", you responded with something he could not possibly have understood, and he correctly asked a clarifying question. We will start at that point.

  3. Click on Drill 2. It will be the student saying "I'm sorry, I didn't get that?"

  4. Give a full explanation of what you meant by your previous unintelligible remark. This can be a few words or it can take a minute, but the idea is that by the end of it you will have given enough information for the student to be able to understand 1) what you meant, and 2) that this is a simple origination and no more needs to be done than show you that he has understood what you said.

  5. Click on Item 01. The student will do one of various things. Only the first is correct:

    • He will seem to understand your explanation and acknowledge what you just said. This will include an acknowledgement of your earlier remark that you have just explained. He will return you to the session, and give the auditing question again. If the return to session includes a question like "Is it OK if we continue?", there will be a slight delay and then he will continue. It is being assumed in this drill that you are giving your assent to continuing the session. In a real session, the pc's actual response would be taken into account.

    • He will get flustered or confused.

    • He will do something else other than simply ack and get you back into session. Asking for further "clarification" is an error, assuming that you have already fully explained yourself already per the drill.

  6. As coach, grade his action at this point appropriately. Say aloud "Good" and click on "Ack&return"; or say aloud "Flunk! [the reason why] Start!" and click the appropriate link. You will receive a coaching grade. Close the open windows as usual.

  7. Handle the other 19 items similarly.

Things to Click:
Remember to grade each student action and so get graded yourself as a coach
