The exchange has been somewhat amusing so far, and is far more interesting that prepping for HS camp.

I have a couple of questions for the "T Bad" side.

1. What are the links between "traditional" debate and the banking model of education/passive pedagogy? Are those links intrinsic? How do we determine the existence and strength of those links?

2. What are the links between "performative" or "critical" debate and libratory pedagogy? Are those links intrinsic? How do we determine the existence and strength of those links?

My hypothesis is that these links are relatively weak and non-intrinsic. This untested supposition is based on my observation of both the many traditional debate-types who live/espouse radical politics and the many non-traditional debate-types who live/espouse traditional politics.

I could be wrong.

best,
