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
I apologize if I've been posting a lot of threads! I'm still brooding over a tournament from the weekend, and several of my judges (and even my sibling oh my goodness) have been telling me that I need to organize my rebuttals. (in fact i think that's why i lost my last round-- even if i won in my heart lmao,, :'(( ) So how does one have more organized rebuttals? Does it come with practice and with better flows? Thank you in advance!
Hello, this is my first year in policy debate and I was wondering how the older debaters talk so fast in their rebuttals. I was hoping for some tips on how to spread in rebuttals as well, like, I have a lot of arguments in my head and I sort of know what to say but when I try to talk fast the info just gets lost and comes out as broken English have the time. :[ Any of you older debaters wanna give me some tips? Thanks for reading.
