Hall/Lundberg T Debate Assignments

Topicality Debates

1. Instructions--
One person debates the negative and one person debates the affirmative. The negative needs to prepare a T violation as you would present it in a round. The affirmative needs to prepare 2AC answers. The negative will then answer the aff answers.

Use the theory house to construct your violation, you can use Planet Debate to get evidence.

There will be a 1 minute cross x after each of the first two speeches.

2. Assignments—
