I am the assistant speech and debate coach at Pennsbury HS in Pennsylvania. I competed primarily in Congressional Debate and Extemporaneous Speaking. I was a 3x NSDA qualifier in Congressional Debate.

First and foremost, know that I am not much of a debate judge. I've judged my share of PF and LD, and I have a general understanding of how to judge both events (so I'm not a lay judge insofar as that I do have an idea of what I'm doing). Prefer traditional arguments, but I can deal with progressive cases if you have an interesting perspective (but I would lean on the side of traditional). If I'm the only judge on your panel with these preferences, run your crazy case - I'll try and keep up.

Because I enjoy a good debate, here are my preferences:

- Come prepared with all of your cards organized. I don't want to sit there and waste time while you fish around to find a specific card.

- Speed: Spreading will make it so that I can't include as much info on the flow - my typing is not super fast. In terms of speed, I suggest that you speak quickly but don't spread.

- Please signpost and lay out a roadmap, ESPECIALLY in your rebuttal speeches. I'm cool with off-time roadmaps (in fact, I encourage it).

- I will time you, but I expect you to time yourself and your opponents - I will stop flowing if you go over time.

- I appreciate a good clash over a good point. It makes filling out my ballot much easier when I can link arguments together.

- PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE weigh the round. I cannot stress how important it is for you to lay this out in your rebuttal speeches.

My email is morganelizabeth@temple.edu if you have any more questions.
