Hello! I debated for Boston Latin Academy (small school in a UDL) and primarily read kritikal arguments (a lotta cap, security, ks of liberalism, etc...). I’ve been away from debate for a hot minute so explanations of topic-specific minutiae and jargon are highly appreciated.
-Do what you do best. I have voted for every argument. Of course, nothing homophobic, racist, transphobic, etc...!!
-Tell me how to vote and how to evaluate the round. Your last 2 speeches should be writing a ballot for me. Pick out a few arguments that you are winning on and explain/weigh your impacts.
-Compare your arguments/evidence! Tell me why your arguments outweigh and should be preferred.
-Jokes are appreciated.
Speed - I am fine w speed so long as you don't zoom through analytics and are clear!!!! Pls slow down on tags and important analytic args
K affs - I really appreciate well-written k affs and love judging these debates. Tell me why the aff outweighs FW or any offense the neg has. Tell me what the ballot signifies.
Ks - Tell me what the role of the ballot/judge is. I love a good link debate!!!! Especially when teams contextualize their link analysis to the aff and point out specific instances of the aff that lead to the k's impacts. I'm not super familiar with the literature base for high theory/postmodernism, so please please PLEASE explain if you're reading anything along those lines. But regardless, you should be explaining your arguments because spewing jargon and making your 2ncs long overviews with little contextualization to the aff will probably not be appreciated. Permutations should have net benefits.
Topicality - Do impact calc and compare your model of debate to the affs.
Framework - Tell me why your model of debate is preferable, why education offered through policy simulation on this topic is good, do impact calc. TVAs are cool.
Theory - I haven't voted on theory a lot, but if you prove in round abuse and impact it well, you're golden.
Flashing - PLEASE keep it short and sweet. If you start taking too long to flash, I will start prep.
Feel free to e-mail me or ask me questions about my paradigm before the round! If you want to know more about how I think about debate, just read Moselle Burke's paradigm.
