Your plan will have basically 4 components, although plans can take several different lengths, forms, and levels of complexity. This is just a basic sketch of an average case. If you want to see an example then click here. You donít have to follow it to the letter just use it as a jumping off point. You will need:
There should be certain reasons why doing the plan your way is a good thing. There are sometimes other benefits not directly related to your actual goal, or maybe just incidental good things that will come from your plan. This is where evidence of those things go. For example, an advantage to increasing computer classes is that it will foster more students to go to the technology sector which is in desperate need of more people and helps the economy by stimulating growth.
The structure of the affirmative case can vary widely, however there is an order that you should probably start off with until you gain more experience and understanding.
Itís okay to switch the position of your inherency stuff and your significance/harms stuff, just be sure to keep all of the same kind of evidence together.
Put your case and plan together in outline form, with "tags" (the little statement you read before you read the evidence that basically summarizes whatever the evidence says), and "cards" (the actual piece of evidence that you got from your research that proves what you are trying to argue). Based on the structure above, here is an example of what the skeleton of your case should look like.
You can have as many sub-points, tags and cards as you need or want, but keep in mind not to go over the time limits. Your case should be tightly organized around an outline form, because it makes it easier for the judge and the negative team to keep up with what you are arguing. Remember this is just a starting sketch try writing it in different ways until you are comfortable with your case.
