    Comments: You made some good arguments in your constructive and rebuttal. Make sure and give these arguments again in the closing.

    Also, make sure to respond to the arguments the opposition gives, such as homework increasing kid's performance.

    You say that the oppositon doesn't answer your argument that kids will be confused if their parents help with homework.

    The opposition answered that teachers go over homework before they give it, and that parents can help using their own ways and methods.
    You did a wonderful job giving arguments to support your case and reply to the proposition's case.

    I really liked your argument involving Dr. Cooper. Perhaps next time, you can be a bit clearer about what this example shows.

    It seems to me that the example is meant to show that all students (not just disabled students) can receive important feedback based on their homework.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Ruby Brighten

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the opposition, because she showed that kids do better in school even if they do only a little bit of homework. And given the importance of school, this small investment offer a big reward.

    The proposition says that kids will be confused if they have to do homework without their teachers. The opposition gives a couple of good replies. First she says that parents can use their own ways and methods to teach their children. Second, she says that teachers can guide their students with homework. I find these replies persuasive.
