|Comments:||I think most of the arguments you give about being ABLE to share candy are not really about the resolution. I recommend that you take these arguments out of your constructive speech.
Your most persuasive argument is sharing helps kids make friends and play cooperatively. Make sure nad continue to argue for this point in the last speech!
You can also argue that sharing helps kids form good habits. It can make them good, even if they aren't doing it to be good, at first
|The most persusaive argument you gave was that kids should be taught to give, but not by forcing them.
Next time, try and summarize the idea a bit more clearly and briefly by making a distinction between giving by choice and giving by force.
You can also try and practice your speech a few times before you record it. Your delivery could be a little smoother.
The decision is for the Opposition: Phoenix Weiser
Reason for Decision:
I found the opposition's argument that giving by choice is better than giving by force very persuasive. She relies on her definition of force to make this main argument, and I find it a good definition.
The opposition said that taking something away from someone is what forced sharing means. The proposition answers that forcing teaches people, and he gives the school example. The opposition replies that kids don't like school when forced to go. The proposition doesn't give a response to the oppposition's last argument.
