DEBATE INSTRUCTIONS Module # Debates Debating Groups Summarizing Groups 3 3 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 3 7 8 9 10 11 12 8 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 9 3 10 11 12 13 14 15 10 3 13 14 15 1 2 3 The chart may be a little hard to interpret, so here is how to read it: In each module three debates will take place. The first will be debate by group 1 and the second by group 2. Group 4 will summarize group one’s debate, and group 5 will summarize group two’s debate. Note that I have changed the order of reporting so that to the extent possible you won't be submitting a report on the debate of the same group who reported on your debate. There are typically four to eight persons in each group, so if the class is smaller than our maximum enrollment there may be fewer than 18 groups. We’ll adjust the schedule accordingly, so your summarization or debate may be different than sketched above, or you may have to be moved from one group to another. Hopefully this will all settle out before our first debate in week 3. The debates themselves are ungraded. You will receive five points for “showing up” whatever your team actually does in the debate. Specific Assignment Instructions:

Debating… As a group you will have been given your debate resolution. To begin preparation you will need to divide your group into two halves, A and B. Decide whether half A will take the “affirmative” or the “negative” position. B will take the opposite side. (If we were really studying debate we would have each half group prepare both sides, but to keep things easier we’ll let you decide in advance which side to advocate.) If your team consists of six members one person in each half will present the initial case, one person will do the rebuttal, and one person will do the summary. You can all participate in crossfire or appoint one of your group to take on this role. If teams contain eight persons then the crossfire will be given by person four. Let’s start with how our debates are organized (we’ll enforce the time limits strictly): 1. The affirmative case is made – 3 minutes 2. The negative case is made – 3 minutes 3. The affirmative rebuttal – 3 minutes 4. The negative rebuttal – 3 minutes 5. Affirmative “crossfire” – 2 minutes 6. Negative “crossfire” – 2 minutes 7. Affirmative summary – 2 minutes 8. Negative summary – 2 minutes 9. Class discussion and voting – 5 minutes The affirmative case

Begin by stating the resolution and briefly defining any terms in the resolution that might be interpreted differently by the two groups.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
