    Big Questions 2018-19

    My team is doing a big questions tournament for the NSDA grant. The resolution is "Humans are primarily driven by self-interest." I don't typically debate big questions, although I have in the past. I'm curious about what non-typical aff and neg arguments there are? It seems to me that the debate will ultimately be the neg providing examples of good deeds and the aff saying everything is psychologically about self interest. Are there any other ways/ contentions to make the debate interesting?
  2. I am at a national tournament and many judges voted for the other team because of their preferences and biases, however, I'm not complaining. One judge said that she voted Affirmative even though they dropped and conceded and didn't explain many arguments, and my coach said that coming out of the last rebuttal we need to articulate why the judge should vote for us. Can you please help me formulate an overview of why I, as the Affirmative, would win using my advantages? I will give credit where it is due, thank you! I'm running the Dream Act

    Answering Crip Poetics/Ableism Kritiks

    I usually read affs centered on identity politics, and am trying to prep answers to Crip Poetics/Ableism but am not sure what kinds of arguements are effective. The only concrete answer I have is 1 card that warrants a perm (doing the advocacy in the mindset of the alt), but it isn't the best of cards/args College Prep is one I've noticed, but there are definitely more teams reading this kritik/performance http://hspolicy.debatecoaches.org/College+Prep/Harper-Sessions+Neg Cards would be good too, or just args
  9. I need some help figuring out a constitutional framework. Essentially I am trying to flesh out the idea that constituionalsm is a pre-req to morality- at least when the discourse is about rights in america- because when examining the "right and legality" in america, it goes back the constitution. I have heard of other frameworks, I am just trying to figure out how the framework works, and what I would need to argue

    Be a part new debate documentary!

    Hi, this is the director and producer of the film We Affirm! We Affirm is a new and upcoming documentary about the world of high school debate. We created this film with the intention to educate those not in the debate community about what exactly it is that we do and why we are so passionate about it. We also want this to be a film for debaters by debaters, which is where you guys come in! We want to be able to have debaters from all across the nation and globe to a part of this film. One of the biggest aspects of this film is focusing on the voice of debaters and letting them share how debate has affected their lives. If you would like to be a part of this, then just create a video and send it to weaffirmdoc@gmail.com . The video does not have to be anything fancy and can really just be shot on your webcam. All you need to do is say your name and where you are from and then answer the following questions: Why did you join debate? After joining, why have you chosen to stick around? How has debate impacted or changed your life? We look forward to working with all of you and hope to hear back from you all soon! If you would like to learn more about us you can check out our Indie Go Go page, too. igg.me/at/we-affirm-debate-documentary
  11. Does anyone have backfiles from the 2003 mental health topic? I've looked everywhere, but can only find them on Planet Debate. However, each time I download a file from there, it says the file can't be found. I'm looking for pretty much anything, but am mainly looking for affs and case negs.

    Paper Debating Kritik

    I'm looking for a kritik of debating on paper. Something about how using paper instead of a computer kills trees and is bad for biodiversity. Does it even exist? I'll be willing to trade some neolib or Kappeler stuff for it. Thanks in advance.

    Debate Laptop

    What's a relatively affordable, good laptop to buy for debate and why? When looking for a laptop for debate, what exactly should I be looking for? I know it needs a decent amount of battery life, but how much RAM, etc?

  18. So I've been having a lot of... debate... with my family over the activity. I do LD, and love it. I've learned so much from it in the year I've done it - how to research, about current events, and - now that I'm focusing on K debate - critical issues like capitalism, racism, sexism, and homophobia that are all very real in our society. The people in the community are wonderful, and I've made most of my friends through it. However, my parents are less happy about it, and I can see where they're coming from. I think that last year could have gone worse grade-wise (I ended with just one B out of As in my classes), but I was always thinking about debate one way or another, and when I got my laptop, I would do a little Spanish work, switch to Word to work on a spike, do a little English HW, go back to reading Giroux for half an hour. My parents also noticed that I was more stressed out - especially before tournaments. They also start to lose faith in debate as public speaking when they see TOC finals where people are talking at 8453 wpm. I'm taking AP Biology this coming year, along with Honors Chemistry and other Honors courses. I'm a little worried that I might be able to keep up with the curriculum, from what I gather from my textbooks, and I'll definitely have to study the material at home. My family and I had a long discussion, and we came up with a some options: 1. I continue with the activity as before, and may or may not keep up my grades. 2. I stop going to local tourneys. Allows me to still do tech debate, which I love (but my parents hate), but will require a lot of preparation beforehand that might conflict with me studying at home. 3. I quit Forensics entirely. Solves all academic impacts but links to an Extreme Sadness DA. 4. I stay in the Forensics community and do OO or another activity that more visibly perfects public-speaking skills. Maybe I'll go to a local tourney or two for old times' sake. Are there any other alternatives possible in my situation? I really want to debate, but I don't want to sacrifice my grades, for a "game", as much as it hurts to say it. Can someone also hmu with a "benefits of debate" backfile or something because I wanna prep out the usual responses ("tech debate is stupid" "how is radical anarcho-super-destructionist theory going to help you become a doctor" "you haven't become a better speaker, just able to talk really fast and argue with me better")

    Debate Synergy Program File

    So, I've been out of debate for a while now, but I've been using Debate Synergy in college since it's really good for organizing my notes. Problem is, my old laptop that had debate synergy has recently broken and after trying to find debate synergy for my new laptop, I either find it on exclusive membership wikis, the web app, or phishing/virus sites. If anyone could provide the file or give a link leading to a valid download link that would be great. I'm looking for the debate synergy with the toolbar at the top of MS Word. Thank you.
