Simple Resolutional Analysis for Lincoln-Douglas Debate and Policy Debate

1) Types of conflict/Nature of the conflict
2) Defining terms
3) History of the debate (ideas over time)
4) Context (???) * Note context of the issue is probably far more important in some regards than the “history” of the debate. They have different impacts on different debates to be honest.

1) Value Premise
2) Value Criteria
3) Arguments
4) Examples
5) Data/Research
6) Analogies/Metaphors
7) Memorable Lines
7) Implications
8) Distinctions/Nuance/Observations
9) Nature of the Burden

* You could just modify it for policy debate. Value premise and value criteria are often assumed as utilitarianism and lives saved in policy debate.
