```							The 2nr: The Hardest
Speech in Debate
What are you, 2NR?
 The last negative
speech in a debate

   The speech happens
after the 1ar, and before the 2ar

   It is the negative’s last
and to make an impression
on the judge
Why is the 2nr the Hardest
Speech in Debate?
   Caught between a rock and a hard
place
   The 1ar is really
fast
   The 2ar is really
eloquent
The Dilemma

   Go too slow, you won’t
arguments

   Go too fast, and you
can’t match the
eloquence of the 2ar
Jobs of the 2nr
   Summarize the negative positions

line-by-line

   Be Eloquent

   Make choices        STEM: Not just
for plants anymore…
2nr worldviews

   Theory 1: The 1ar “in reverse”
– Go really fast
– Keep a bunch alive
– Don’t give the 2ar a
chance to breathe

Spew em down….
Theory 1?
   Problems with Theory 1:

   Pick Issues
   Explain previous
evidence
   They kick positions
they can’t win
   They make the debate
like a funnel

   1) Save at least half
   2) Have an overview:
three reasons why you
win
   3) Think about the      Save it up!
“big picture” first
evidence
   5) Make the debate
SMALL
   6) You are not
winning everything.
EVER.
What are you
ACTUALLY
winning?
   7) Don’t be afraid
to group arguments.

It turns your
case, I swear!
offense, end
with defense
   10) Learn to think
like a 2ar: how
would you get
out of this trap? Then
shut down their
escape hatch.

Don’t let them
weasel out

   Kicking a disad: It means you are
choosing not to go for an argument
   You must eliminate their offense
ICE ICE BABY
   Steps: ICE
– 1) Identify that you
are “kicking” the
– 2) Concede affirmative
– arguments that allow you
to get out of the disad
– 3) Explain how these
– arguments take out the     Dan Bagwell’s
