Paradigm Statement
Last changed 29 September 2020 3:45 PM CDT

I've been an assistant coach at Campus HS for 4 years, and I was an assistant in Valley Center for 3 years. I also debated in high school. Clarity of arguments is most important to me. Debaters should be understandable, and they can speak at a rapid pace. However, extreme speed--like that of an auctioneer--is unnecessary. It is better to have quality arguments that read a ton of evidence. I like for debaters to explain how the evidence supports that argument he/she makes. Merely reading a ton of evidence with no analytical link to voter issues is not productive debating. Keep it civil as well.

If I stop flowing and cross my arms, that means you have lost me. Either you are confusing or you are reading so quickly I can't understand the words coming out of your mouth. This is your visual cue to adjust your speaking style to make yourself more understandable.

Above all, I vote on the logic and clarity of the arguments.
