    Planless Aff?

    So, I compete in a primarily stock/comms area and am interested in running a K-Aff. I found one that I like but it doesn't have a plan. I'm sure this is a novice question but how would I go about running a case without a plan? Also, how do I defend T? How does the USFG substantially reduce anything?

    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

    Debate Help

    Hello all I am relativley new to policy, and have started the policy section of my schools debate club. I was inspired to do policy after watching the documentary "resolved" in 8th grade.I just needed some help with getting a good understanding with proper flowing, and proper case writing so for the future this can help me. I know about stock issues but what is the format of the case, and how to actually flow, along with some advice for the negative. In short just please give a brief format of important points and an overview as on April 5th we will be participating in regionals as we are automatically qualified.
  7. I'm a novice debater who's trying to prep for districts and I'm in desperate need of making a framework argument for a racism advantage based on border drones. please help me! all help is welcome due to the fact that I barely run framework so it'd be nice and stuff, thank you!

    Hey Cross-X community, how many of you are running midterms and what are your thoughts on it? Also, what are your thoughts on the specific links? I think the best internal link is preventing a GOP super majority, but I'm not sure how strong the link chain is.

    Pirate Pedagogy

    Hey everyone, I know I've posted a topic on this before, but I'm still a bit confused. Regardless if they run it or not (don't tell me they stopped running it) I am a bit confused as to what the piratical pedagogy affirmative advocates. http://hspolicy.debatecoaches.org/College+Prep/Jiang-Raees+Aff ^These are the cites, I've beat the case on framework earlier this year, but I want to just prp out a neg strat. - what is the ac talking about (give me a basic summary) - what are they advocating for - were pirates oppressed? Why? Why is piratical pedagogy good?

    Getting off the Rock

    Does anyone have any good cards for energy/military/econ is key to getting off the rock or any getting off the rock impact cards? Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Title says it all, if I do decide to go to a school that has college policy (I have a few on my list, and I like them all for reasons other than having debate), will it be a rather large transition? Is it a lot of work, so much that it would detract from my schoolwork? (and if anyone is wondering, the main schools with debate I'm looking at are Cornell and Binghamton)

    Ks with a vote aft/neg to reject

    I am trying to figure out if people win with an alternative along the lines of "Vote affirmative to show you support the K, therefore solving it in the real world." If you've won with a K with a similar alternative, please tell me what K it was and what the alternative text stated.

    Security K construction

    I want to construct my first Kritik 100% from my own cuts and whatnot. Does anyone know anything good authors/sources to start on the construction of a security kritk (AC portrays china as more of a threat than it realistically is in order to justify almost limitless action + need to reevaluate how we understand politics and threats to prevent actual actual escalation). Do I have a proper conception of the kritik? Also- I have heard that Zizek is a fun/interesting kritik to make- would this 1) Be easier and 2) be more competitive as a K?
