Paradigm Statement
Last changed 12 November 2021 4:16 PM CST

[Background] I am currently at UT Austin majoring in Finance & History. I also debate for the University and work as an Assistant PF Coach at Seven Lakes. Previously, I debated at Vista Ridge in PF reaching State & TOC. Conflicts: Seven Lakes (TX), Vista Ridge (TX), Interlake (WA). Add me to the chain: amod.daherkar@utexas.edu

[Evidence] Evidence ethics can make or break a round. I expect properly cut cards that can be produced in a timely manner at your opponent’s request. If you take more than 1 minute locating “evidence” I will run your prep time. I do not expect disclosure full-text or otherwise and I am also okay with paraphrasing, though I do not prefer this. I am open to evaluating and voting off disclosure & paraphrasing theory.

[Argumentation] This is really up to you; you’re debating not me. However, I do prefer weighing or framing coming out of the 1st rebuttal. 2nd rebuttals are expected to frontline AND collapse. I prefer line-by-line summaries and I don’t have a preference for how you treat final focus. Please make your weighing comparative. Repeating you impact and tagging “scope” and/or “magnitude” after it is not weighing, it’s just proving to me you know how to memorize a number.

[Speed/Speaks] I am okay with speed so long as you don’t sound like “hghghhdhhhss.” Speaker points generally range from 28-29.5. This is largely based off my subjective view of how articulate and convincing you sound as a debater. Although I am not extremely invested in crossfire this will affect your speaks. Please avoid being an unnecessary prick in cross unless it is tied to making a tasteful joke. Feel free to cut GCX for +90s of prep to both sides.

Feel free to ask questions after the round, I am here to help you learn and improve.

Other paradigms I agree with: Jack Hayes, Jonathan Daugherty, Max Fuller, & Nahom Tulu.
