Card of the Day
As part of our commitment to provide free resources for the broader debate community, during the 2020-2021 season, everyday we will email one, vetted, high-quality piece of evidence that is specific to modern-day debates in Lincoln-Douglas (LD) and Public-Forum (PF) and ready to be read. Each piece of evidence is directly sourced by our Head of Content, Raffi Piliero, and reviewed by our Managing Director, Paras Kumar. Each piece of evidence will contain a brief description of how we think this card should be optimally deployed and any miscellaneous thoughts we have about the evidence in question.
To sign up, simply enter your information below. Please note we will manually remove fake emails from our list. We hate spam and promise to not distribute your email under any circumstances.
Please note that the evidence we provide is not meant to be a replacement for thorough research on the topic. We have extensively vetted each piece of evidence, and our students have used many of the cards we send out to regularly win high-stakes debates at the most prestigious invitationals in the United States. That being said, one of the best pieces of advice that Paras received early in his career is "cards don't win debates", analysis does. We strongly encourage you to go back to the source cited and understand the broader structural and analytical/empirical claims posited by the author(s) so you can be knowledgable about the evidence you are using when the stakes are highest.
