How do you get out of straight turns in debate?

1) Go for the K

2) Go for T

3) Go for Theory

No really:

1) You limit the DAs you have to be ready for this via the counterplan

2) Have lots of good impacts

3) otherwise counterplan out of the impacts

4) Impact comparison on the other DAs

Link turns:

1) your link turns should always account for the link turn debates

2) time frame of the link turn vs. the link

3) impact uniqueness

4) link uniqueness

5) counterplan for uniqueness

Being ready for predictable link & impact turns. It takes 30 seconds to a minute to write a block. It takes about 3 to 5 minutes to write a pretty good block–say for a K.

That time is well invested.

Once you’ve done it for one of your positions….it gets far, far, far easier to do it for the others.

I’ve provided a lot of counterplan type advice above. Pick one or two foundational strategies.

BTW, you have the block, you shouldn’t get impact turned such that you lose those debates.

Econ & hege & prolif debates work out in pretty predictable ways.
