About This Download
Students should be comfortable with their cases and understanding what it means to be critical when it comes to other debaters’ arguments. If cases are still not selected, don’t worry. There are plenty of cases in the Monument Membership to take a pick from, and a few more will be released before the end of the year.
Any which way, debaters should be warming up to briefing. “Briefing” simply means preparing material for a debate in advance. Briefing in Lincoln-Douglas debate can mean a few different things, though in general in means that you are preparing arguments, analysis and applications of your own to combat specific cases, arguments and applications of an opponent. Just like lawyers create case files and briefs for different lawsuits, debaters create briefs that they can use come tournament time.
