Elizabeth Zhang ParadigmLast changed 12/8 3:03P EDT
Hello! I’m Elizabeth Zhang, a senior at Princeton High School who has competed on both the local and the national circuit in Lincoln-Douglas for the past three years.
I will vote off the flow based on who has the most offense under the winning framework.
- I have no preference for whether you sit or stand, how fast you talk, etc.
- Make sure to do work on the framework-level of the debate and make specific arguments on why I should prefer your framework over your opponents. Also, don’t debate your value in the round. It’s almost always pointless, I’ll ultimately be looking at your value criterion anyway.
- Please extend your arguments! I won’t accept new arguments in later speeches and I'll view any arguments you don't extend as dropped, so extensions are necessary.
- I’ll evaluate arguments based on whatever weighing is given to me in the round, so weigh, weigh, weigh.
- During your rebuttals, please signpost (tell me where you are on the flow).
- In your last speech, summarize the major arguments in the round and give me a route to the ballot - ideally, you should be writing the RFD for me.
- Make sure to explicitly link your impacts back to either your framework or your opponent's framework (ideally both!).
At the end of the day, I believe debate is an educational activity, so learn a lot, be respectful, and have fun!
