    Use of evidence: 5.5 5.2
    Delivery skill: 5.8 5.4
    Coherence of arguments: 5.5 5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5.7 5.4
    Identification of key points: 5.7 5.4
    Comments: You gave a lot of good arguments and gave a smooth delivery in all of your speeches. Good job!

    Mention the term 'costly giving' in your rebuttals; in using this term, you give more detail to your argument that sharing brings happiness. It will give your argument more content and sound more persuasive.
    You did a good job giving arguments, nbut make sure that they cohere or connect with each other. You seem to want to support health of kids, but your argument about letting kids eat a lot of candy is against health.


    Be sure provide your citations on the website, otherwise it is not available to the propostion and the judge.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Tabby Byron

    Reason for Decision:

    I find the proposition's argument that forced sharing gives kids happiness is persuasive.

    The opposition argued that while some kids may be happy with forced sharing, others will not. The proposition cited her evidence given in the constructive speech and explained how the evidence shows that kids are happier when they share, since costly giving makes them feel good.

    I also think that the proposition's argument that too much candy is bad for kids is persuasive. The proposition showed that kids eating less candy is a good idea and a vote for the proposition will make this happen.

    Also, an ad hominem argument is one that attacks a person, rather than gives an argument.

    For example: If a person argues that forced sharing is good, and someone else replies "you are a hypocrite, beccause you don't share," the second person is attacking the first person (not their argument) and using an ad hominem argument.
