Whip Speeches II Training 30/11/2011 Warwick Debating Society Proudly sponsored by
Recapping the role of a Whip Speaker Identify the “clash points” aka the voting issues. Clarify/add analysis to your partner’s extension. Differentiate your team from those on your bench and the opposition. Show why your team won the debate.
Clash Points Identify two/three “clash points” i.e. what the main contentious issues were in the debate. Use these to structure your speech. Put everything, important, that was said under these headings. Prioritise the clash points containing your extension.
Note-taking for a summary speech -On one page, “judge” the top half debate. -On another, write down the headlines of the main points both sides make. Especially opp. -Have a page for each of the clash points.
On your “judging sheet” Circle arguments which need to be responded to. Note down any rebuttal you have in shorthand next to them. Ensure you speak to your partner so that they know what needs to be responded to.
Main points. Ensure that your extension isn’t repeating any of these points. HOWEVER, circle points on this sheet which you feel you can do an analysis extension on. Ensure you have rebuttal to these within your summary speech.
Clash Points Put the clash point at the top of the sheet. Under these put down the argument of an opposition team and which team said it. Below it put down the responses your opening team make AND, more importantly, the “debate winning” arguments/analysis your partner wins.
Clash Points continued. Add examples to your partners analysis. Emphasise how your partner’s analysis wasn’t engaged with and why it is so important. Differentiate yourself from the top-half team. NB: if the team infront of you has CLEARLY beaten you. Refer to arguments as “our arguments” or “we tell you in Opp that…”
