Ciar Jones Paradigm

Last changed 10/11 5:30P CDT

Experience Debating: 5 years 2012-2017 (I hope that math is right)

Experience Judging: 2+ years 2016-now

Me: Middle school debater, turned high school debater. Phoenix Military Academy is where I'm housed, but for now I'm a freelance judge eager to get back into the debate world. We all have nightmare stories and epic tales, all of that is/can be/ have been used in rounds, take that how you will, but just know I like a fun round and love to learn so I can brag to my friends about how "smart" I am. I'm a psych major at Loyola University Chicago so anything involving math, please explain thoroughly!

Aff: You have the burden in the round. Prove to me that you can handle any and all attacks to your ideas and can properly defend your interpretations within the round. Although you have a burden, you come in as a heavy hitter with prior knowledge that you've prepped for and can utilize. Breathe and Speak then you'll be fine.

Neg: You get to have the most creativity. You can attack in any way: kritically (sorry I'm old school) or politically. I have no favored args over another so PLEASE run what you know and if you want to try things, respect your opponents enough to give them an ability to debate in the round! Keep the aff on their toes and watch for those "hidden" solvencies. People love neg more due to the control they can have, but if you're too dominate or too relaxed, the aff can jump on you, stay on your toes.

Advice: Each argument is important to the round and no matter how minute, it can be used to sway a judge's mind. I have a preference for proper and strong Kritical (old school sorry) debates, but I'll never discount a more policy oriented round if that's how the debaters are comfortable. My paradigm is no different or special than a typical judge of my year or experience; however, I can adapt easily to the fluidity of a round!

Questions after the round? I'll always provide an email, but in case I'm kicked out of the room for taking too long typing: jonesciar@gmail.com

Questions before the round? Feel free to ask away! I'm an open book, but I'm good at starting on time.

Happy *insert greeting for specific holiday/event/national day*!
