Last Week You Rocked! Fantastic grasp of basic BP elements Public speaking skills Quality arguments Fruitful judging discussion Room for some Improvement: Media + Last weeks topic
Points of Information Can only be given between 1-4 mins. A loud bang will signify this. 1 POI per speech: 1) Time is your currency, do not give it to other teams!!! 2) You want minimal disruption to your structure and flow when you are speaking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1nG3CUo6vk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1nG3CUo6vk Taking 0 is better than taking 2 To summarise: Your speech, your time, your floor. POI’s are a reluctant necessity where due to role fulfilment requirements it is advised you take 1. Any more than this inhibits your ability to put forward persuasive argumentation in a substantial and clear manner.
First Half Structure/ Pointers Use this table!!! Introduction of points and Conclusions – it sounds like a thing Distinction between rebuttal and substantive Attack all opponents points Hypothetical from last weeks debate From last week In practice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_raCNgBJpAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_raCNgBJpA Structure of 1 st half speech Introduce your substantive points Rebuttal previous speakers points 1 2 3 Explain and Analyse your substantive points 1 2 3 Conclude by summarising your points
Second Half Structure/Pointers No knew material must be in Summary speeches. Team line. Teamwork. Structure: Extension says new stuff, summation contextualises it. From last weeks debate… Extension Speech Introduce extension point 1/2 Rebuttal: Pick the most important arguments which need to be taken down Explain extension point 1 Explain extension point 2 (if here is one) Summarise your extension arguments

Attack the counterpoints, implicit or explicit in opponents arguments which challenge your extension and case 2-3 themes to pick up Last week In practice:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLv6q1xhNH8, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAmea9zwx1Qhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLv6q1xhNH8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAmea9zwx1Q Structure of a sum Introduce 2/3 points of clash 1 st point of clash We said Here is why we’re right They said Here is why they are wrong 2 nd point of clash We said Here is why were right They said Here is why they are wrong 3 rd point of clash We said Here is why we are right They said Here is why they are wrong
