About "Speaker Responsibilities"
Mike Wascher helped contribute to this release.
Each of the four speakers has a different role to play in the public forum debate round. In this lesson, you will learn what is expected of each.
Long before any debate round starts, you and your partner will decide who will be the A1 and A2, and who will be the B1 and B2 speakers. The choices depend on how you and your partner work together, your strengths and weaknesses, which side of the resolution you will be arguing, etc. Sometimes, after considering the responsibilities of each speaker, you may discover that you and your partner are really not a good fit, or that perhaps someone else in your class would be a better fit. This is something you and your teacher (or coach) should work out, and sometimes it’s best for your teacher to make the assignment, and then wait to see how things work out.
Let’s go through each of the responsibilities you and your partner will have in your speeches…
