This week: Parliamentary (a.k.a. "parli") Debate. Parli is a form of debating where each team is given a resolution, a set time to prepare, and then they debate. Resolutions are written for each round. Tournaments and scrimmages match teams up, one side affirming the resolution as "the government" and the other side negating the resolution as "the opposition." A judge ranks how well they debated and declares a winner of the debate round. We are going to cover:
- Simple Explanation of Parli Debate
- The Structure of Parli Debate
- Leagues for Season 19
- Resources for Members
- Sample Download
