[eDebate] rebuttal c-xes
Wed Apr 8 11:55:19 CDT 2009
the importance of cross-examination in cross-examination debate is diminished by their placement at the front of the debate nullifying the ability of c-x q&a to make an argument that will impact the decision of the debate. many debaters and judges cherish c-x as an art form and unique interactive moment. why are c-xes set up to be ultimately non-decisive? the rebuttals are the speeches that count for the decision and there's no c-x. adding c-x's does not necessarily require lengthening the time of a round since prep-time can be downsized. quiet rebuttal prepping is a waste of good time.
