|Category||Sohum Shah||Daniela Arnold|
|Use of evidence:||4.3||3.8|
|Coherence of arguments:||4.2||4.2|
|Responsiveness to opponent:||4.7||4|
|Identification of key points:||4.7||3.6|
|Comments:||Very good overall. Watch your time management in the future (not a big enough deal to vote on here, but cleaner without that). Good use of evidence and recognizing key arguments that Daniela doesn't answer throughly.||Good debate. I think you get a little lost in the weeds (i.e. the Sara Chang example) and don't spend enough time on the big picture. Also if you answer Sohum's arguments in order you'll be less likely to miss answering arguments like the bad attitude turn.|
The decision is for the Proposition: Sohum Shah
Reason for Decision:
I vote on the bad attitude and hurts poor kids turns. Sohum does a good job of framing those arguments as round winners. In the future Daniela should take more of her speech time to frame out her impacts in terms of what the judge should vote on.
