    Use of evidence: 3 5.5
    Delivery skill: 5 5.5
    Coherence of arguments: 5 5.5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5 5.5
    Identification of key points: 5 5.5
    Comments: You are a good speaker and make some good arguments.

    Some of your arguments come too late however. Your reply that students don't learn anything new when doing homework should come earlier.

    Be sure to give your constructive arguments about mental health in your closing.

    Also, make sure and provide your citations!
    You are a good speaker, and your constructive arguments are persuasive.

    Specifically, you did a good job extending the Scholastic evidence that homework promotes good habits.

    Since you are arguing that kids can still exercise even if they do homework, you can mention that a vote for you will also offer all of the mental health benefits the propostion discusses, in addition to the good habits doing homework will offer.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Emme Davis

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the opposition, mostly because I am persuaded by the Emme's argument that you can both do homework and have time for other activities, including exercise; you don't have to pick one or the other.

    I am also persuaded by Emme's argument that the homework need not be very time-consuming.
