FLOWING TECHNIQUES

  • Each Major Issue in the Debate Should Get its Own Sheet of Paper.

    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.
