41A. There is one final technique of emphasizing points during the
explanation. The last technique is to ask questions. Do you remember
when we discussed ways to develop interest?
We pointed out that oral
questions could be used to perk up the interest of the class.
questions will also serve to emphasize a point.
For example, in
teaching the second step of the "Lifesaving Measures of First Aid,"
which is to stop the bleeding, you can ask a question to emphasize the
use of the tourniquet by saying, "Now, I've told you that we never
loosen the tourniquet once we have applied it to the patient.
that we leave it to competent medical personnel to decide whether the
tourniquet will be loosened.
Why do you not loosen the tourniquet
periodically, SGT Smith?" A good way to emphasize key points in the
explanation is by asking _________________________________________.
82A. Here's another situation:
A briefer had prepared a 15-minute briefing
for the division commander and the G1.
He planned to give equal
coverage to the following main points.
Battalion strength, losses, and gains.
Status of MOS qualification.
AWOL and delinquency rate.
Special services program.
Just before the briefing was to begin, the division commander told the
"Your G-1 has already filled me in on your personnel data;
however, I am vitally interested in MOS qualification.
I have plenty
of time and would like to be thoroughly briefed on this subject. I want
to know what has been done in the past and what the battalion's
projected plans are for getting all its personnel prepared for SQTs."
The briefer would be mentally prepared for this sudden change if he
considered which briefing tip? _______________________________________ .
