Did World Schools and Big Question in high school. Currently a novice Policy debater for the University of Houston.
CX: Debate however you're comfortable. I expect thorough explanations and impact weighing. I'm a tabula rasas judge; I want to be told exactly what to vote on and why. I find targeted clash very important and valuable. K affs are chill, but I'll need to be told explicitly why you chose to insert it into the debate space.
LD: Similarly to CX, I'm gonna act like a blank slate heading into the round. Framework sets the foundation for the entire round, and I expect it to be applied throughout the whole debate. If one debater persuades me that their framework is better, I'll use that to evaluate the round; if neither do, then I'll default to who was argumentatively more persuasive. It's important in this type of debate that you are mindful of the things you say and the implications they may have, both inside and outside the round.
Speech: Give me what you got! I'll roll with it. Always welcome to new perspectives and fun takes on things. Though, it goes without saying that a controversial opinion should never supercede basic respect for others. Really love in-depth research and exploration of different perspectives, but make sure that counterarguments don't detract or distract from the position you take in the speech.
