PostSubject: re attention getter   Thu Jan 24, 2008 9:40 pm

Caleb, This might sound picky but I would love for you to deliver your full attention getter without breaking it up with... Hello my name is Caleb....


Give whole scenario.... Yada Yada... Mr. Smith ### yada yada....

Once finished... pause allowing judge to think about the scenario and then say...

My name is Caleb S. and I offer this fictitious scenario to challenge you to think about what it would be like if... yada yada ... truth ..... yada yada

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
OK you forum techys.. this is where I know there is a way that I can actually clip and paste Calebs actual speech but I realized that I should have clipped and pasted before I started the post. Is that correct? I couldn't toggle back to the speech without closing out of my post and that is why I wrote yada yada yada.. I couldn't remember his exact words.... Bare with me as I learn how to do this more efficiently!

Caleb,

I just wanted to let you know that your "attention-getter" is very unique. In 6 years of debate, I don't think that I have ever seen a similar introduction. I definitely like it! Only a few suggestions:

1) Make sure that you don't become too verbose in your opening. It seems like it might be a little long-winded, especially when you only have a short amount of time for your negative constructive.

2) You might want to couple the "light" introduction with something a bit more substantive. Maybe at the end of your "Mr. Jones Story" you could add: "This story illustrates the words of Thomas Jefferson who said...." This will give your introduction more significance and depth.

Regarding the rest of your case, I have not had time to review it in its entirety. I will peruse it soon, and then let you know what I think.

Great work; I think you have some unique ideas that will separate you from the rest of the field. Keep it up!

Jimmy
