Paradigm Statement
Last changed 20 December 2017 1:49 PM PST

I am a parent judge and this is my third year around a policy team. I can handle some speed, but please don't sacrifice clarity. During rounds I will flow, including off-case arguments. My grasp of debate jargon varies, so don't rely on it too heavily. 

I don't have any strong opinions about the types of arguments you might run and am not well versed in the literature, so be sure to explain your arguments clearly.  However, I do want novice debaters to understand their own arguments and to know the content well. Be sure to signpost and give me a clear roadmap. 

Speaker points are awarded on a combination of fluency, clarity, volume, correct word usage and pronunciation. I also score on the ability to speak articulately and logically in cross-ex and rebuttals. Please don't use racist/homophobic/sexist/ableist vocabulary or arguments. Also, please feel free to be assertive, but not rude or disrespectful to your opponents. 

I will do my best to disclose my decision when tournaments allow it, but will not provide extensive RFD's in person. I will try to provide specific and helpful comments on my ballots. I am up to date with current events, though not with critical theories.  I will vote on a kritik, but only if it is well-articulated and has sound evidence and reasoning.
