    Use of evidence: 5.2 5.1
    Delivery skill: 5.2 5.1
    Coherence of arguments: 5.2 5.1
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5.2 5.1
    Identification of key points: 5.2 5.1
    Comments: You did a great job making your points. In particular, I like the way you responded to the opposition's arguments, especially the argument about Covid being a special case and how special cases may not apply to general rules. Good job overall. I see improvement and I encourage you to keep going!

    I liked your argument that we need laptops during Covid, but if you really want to make this argument, do it in your first speech and mention it again in your second.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Anna Rosenblatt

    Reason for Decision:

    I voted for the proposition, because I was persuaded by the argument that laptops might get in the way of learning. The proposition explained that it is better to learn than to work quickly, giving me a reason to vote for her.

    Both of you did an excellent job. I would suggest one important point for improvement: mention the "evidence" or research you gave in your first speeches in other speeches as well.

    In other words,after giving an argument in a second or third speech, cite specific articles. For example, say "the article by Magher" or " the research from the Stanford website... show that I am right."
