LEGAL SIZE PAPER
DIFFERENT COLOR PENS
In order of importance:
Space Reasons – you would never have room to fit all the arguments from entire debate in one column.
Organization Issues – allows you to keep issue separate on a separate sheet of paper for analysis.
Strategic Reasons – allows you to strategically shuffle the order that you address issues in the debate.
2. Write Small – as you need to fit lots of information in narrow columns, the smaller you write the more neatly you can fit the arguments on the flow.
3. Use 2 Different Colors
1 color for your team
1 color for opposition
4.Abbreviate – formulate abbreviation system which will allow you to get more arguments down on the flow.
5. Write Neatly – you need to be able to read off your flowsheet during the debate!
6. Leave Space between Arguments
