ABSTRACT An illustration treating the dialogue under study is given to all students. Except for the one chosen to act as student-teacher in the next class, each must prepare at least six questions and six complete-sentence answers on the illustration. The student to act as teacher prepares six questions and six false statements for the class to correct. Before the next session, the illustration is copied on the blackboard, and the instructor checks over the student-teacher's material.
