What is Debate?

  • An oral confrontation between two individuals, teams, or groups whose goal is to convince a neutral party

  • Debate is NOT consensus

  • There is no absolute truth or right and wrong in debate-there is always an other side

  • Creating Arguments that work

  • Group Research

  • Flowing a Debate Round


Case Structure

  • Framework

  • Contention

  • Voters


Contentions-Arguments

  • What is an argument?

    • An argument is a logically supported assertion that can be proven true.

    • An argument is not an opinion, because it has support.


Toulmin

  • Claim: Your argument, what you say is true.

    • The prison system is corrupt

  • Data: Evidence that supports your argument

    • 3,000 guards were convicted of taking bribes,

  • Warrant: Underlying assumption

    • Corruption is bad


Appeals

  • Ethos-ethics

    • It is morally wrong to kill

  • Pathos-passion/emotion

    • This law is needed to protect the children

  • Logos-Logic

    • We will save money and time by doing this


Logical Fallacies

  • See fallacy chart

1AR=1.5 min

NR=3 min

2AR=2 min

AC= Affirmative Construction

Modified LD Times


Voters

  • Reasons for why you have one the round

    • I have proven that…

    • Head to the lab and research


Flowing

  • Flowing is an essential skill in debate, before you can argue against an opponent you must know what they said

  • Standard note taking methods do not work in debate, they are to slow and don’t fit the needs of a round


What you will need

  • Blank Paper

  • Fine point pen (2 different colors)

  • Abbreviation guide


Flowing Steps

  • Step 1: Take 2 Sheets of paper and label one AFF and the other NEG

  • Fold the paper into 4 vertical sections

  • Pre-Flow the Def, Value, Value Criterion, & Contention1 ( use a different color for aff and neg)


Flowing

  • See Handout

  • Sample Resolution:

    • Inaction in the face of injustice makes an individual morally culpable

  • Watch Sample Aff


Caperton’s Flow


Homework

  • Write one long contention or two short contentions for your debate case. Remember total time limits.
