Presentation Transcript

  1. Line-by-Line The strategic importance of organization Weber & Hassan

  2. Overview • What is line-by-line and why is it important? • Tricks of the trade: • Grouping • Extending • Cross-application • Flowing and by-line argumentation

  3. What is line-by-line • Literally, a “line-by-line” response to the opponent’s arguments (especially important in key speeches like the 1AR) • Contextualizing the clash: • Reference the opponent’s argument • Ordered according to the flow (answer in the order offered; likewise, flow in the order offered) • Efficient argumentation

  4. Grouping • Grouping similar arguments and answering them with a block of responses • CAUTION: Don’t over-group • Be sure arguments have the same warrants • Provide a similar causal explanation • Preempt attempts to answer by ungrouping • Put multiple independent responses on each group (why should the response warrants be independent?)

  5. Extending • Pulling across previously cited evidence or analytics to answer arguments • Reference by author/claim, but ALWAYS extend data and warrants • Impact it! Don’t make the judge do the work for you. Why does your extension matter in their decision calculus? (Especially important with drops)

  6. Cross-application • Bringing arguments from one part of the flow or bear on another • USE YOUR 1AC EVIDENCE STRATEGICALLY • Example: cross-applying an I/C card on spending to the U on elections (“economic considerations K/T consumer confidence” explains why Obama can’t win in 2012) • Make sure your cross-applications are consistent (don’t C/A a link turn to an argument with an impact turn)
