When it comes to PF, your arguments should be understood by an audience who doesn't have debate experience. I do not prefer spreading in PF, because of this. If you are going to spread, you need to make sure you are speaking clearly and making sure each point made and all evidence provided is clearly presented to the judge/audience. When making an argument, make sure it is sound and supported by evidence/research. I appreciate road maps before speeches. They don't have to be timed, but should be brief (no longer than 15 seconds). If you bring up an observation, it needs to be carried through the round, or it will not be counted in final decision.
