Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 2
Judging approach: Tabula Rasa
Policy priority: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
Evidence philosophy: Quantity of evidence and quality of evidence are of equal importance
Paradigm: I did debate (cx) for 3 years so i can handle spreading, but I am not the biggest fan of it. I am a visual judge so the better you illustrate your arguments the better i will understand. I like evidence based arguments, and am some what big on creativity. I will listen to any argument presented in the round as long as there is evidence. I know this should be obvious, but tell me why you are right and i should give you the ballot


Rounds judged: 1
Approach: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance
I did Lincoln Douglas debate fro 3 years as well. I do appreciate clash and to uphold your value and criterion in round. If you concede a definition, just say it once and you will be fine I will catch it. Everything is left up to the debater,prove to me you are right, via clash and supporting evidence, and you will have the ballot.
