TR-4 as Student: Section 2

Page 1 of 2: Drill 1

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. Now you will play the part of the student.

  2. Click on "TR-4: Start" and hear the coach start the drill. Close that start window.

  3. This is Drill 1, with the emphasis on clarifying the origin. All of these remarks in Drill 1 will be considered to be pc origins, not comments. Assume there have already been a few "Do birds fly?--Yes--Thank you" exchanges. Say aloud to the doll, "Do birds fly?" Click on the link Item 01.

  4. You will hear the pc say something. Sometimes it will be self-explanatory, and sometimes it will require further clarification.

  5. If it makes complete sense to you, then it will not require clarification. Aloud, acknowledge the pc, give the repeat statement, and repeat the auditing question, "Do birds fly?". Also click on "OK as-is" for "I acked the origin, and returned pc to session".

  6. If the remark required clarification, say (aloud) something appropriate to the pc, like "I didn't get that last?" or "What's up?" or whatever, and click on the "Clarify?" link for "I asked the pc to clarify his remark".

  7. If clarification was needed, the pc will give enough information for you to understand what he was saying, and to determine that this is a simple origination and you need do no more with it than acknowledge the pc and return him to session.

  8. Then acknowledge the pc, give the repeat statement, and repeat the auditing question, "Do birds fly?". Also click on the "Now OK" for "I acked the origin, and returned pc to session".

  9. The program here is not going to check that you gave this final ack and returned the pc to session. All the same, you should say the words aloud to get into the habit of what would occur in session. You are doing TRs training designed to be as realistic as possible, not trying to get a high score on a video game!

  10. The computer will give the usual "Good" or "Flunk" indications. Close out any open windows as normal. Do the items through to Item 20. Repeat as needed.
