Winning Words - Congressional Debate Sample
Welcome to Winning Words! In the following pages, you will find a sample of a Winning Words research packet for Congressional Debate. The pieces of legislation we have chosen were selected from the Florida Blue Key Tournament of 2010. For each piece of
legislation, there is both an affirmative and negative summary, the full text of the bill or resolution, and at least ten unique evidence sources. Below select evidence cards, you will also find an italicized remark written by the contributing researcher. These “evidence notes” should be used to fully understand how the card is meant to be used and its role in the grand scheme of the debate. Throughout the year, Winning Words will research major national tournaments, and we will follow a similar research structure. We hope this research enhances debate and learning for all high school debaters!
About Winning Words Debate:
Winning Words Debate was founded in 2011 in response to the lack of resources for Congressional Debaters in high school forensics. Our mission is "To both enhance the quality of each speech and debate round and facilitate student learning by providing high quality resources to high-school forensics competitors and teams."
Winning Words spent its inaugural year providing Congressional Debate research for major national tournaments. We have now increased our research offerings to include Public Forum!
Welcome again to Winning Words! We hope to serve you from Novice to Nationals!
