I started debating summer of 2018 and I only participated in one rookie and novice debate. However, due to the lack of varsity debaters on our school team and my current (and far more experienced) varsity partner's wishes of going to NAUDL, I was moved up to varsity off of 2 official debate league tournaments and one JV summer camp tournament. In December, I went to our debate league's fall championship, and I felt utterly useless because I didn't know how to properly flow, spread, understand spreading, do analytics, or answer cross x questions. I just kind of felt like dead weight for my partner -- I was only there to read cards so that she could prep during my speeches. My rebuttals were also utter garbage and at one point I needed my partner to type what I had to say on a google doc. How can I improve? I really want to do better but I don't even know how to spread or terms related to different AFFs. I'd really appreciate as much help as I can get, thank you!
Hey people, I am a 3rd year debater at Olathe North HS, KS, going into my Senior year next year. I'm relatively new to running K's. This will be my 2nd year debating only varsity, and I am very intrigued and interested in learning more about K theory, and running K's. I've been fairly successful and placed in my share of harder tournaments, and I've hit plenty of K's, i just want to get a larger knowledge on K theory. If anyone has any advice or tips on lit that i should read, please post below. Thanks~! P.S.~ I understand the essentials of Cap K, Neolib, Race K, and the Fem K. I am intrigued by the false heroism (Batman K), and other similar ones (not just because the name sounds cool) haha. Thanks
Hi All, I was wondering how difficult it is to use OpenEvidence and win in varsity rounds. This year, as a Novice, we used OpenEvidence and did very well, but I know that varsity teams often make their own arguments which are not on openevidence. If I use arguments on openevidence, will I get destroyed? Also, how do you respond to teams who write their own arguments. Lastly, I am interested in making my own kritik/aff for next year. How do you get ideas for either, and after getting an idea, how do you do research? AmAsKh
