JUN is pronounced like FUN (she/her)
I enjoy authentic debate. I will rank higher for speakers who genuinely advance the debate by bringing in fresh and nuanced perspectives.
Debate is meant to be informative and challenging. Avoid intellectual bullying and remember that we are in a space that is an extension of the classroom.
Sources should be credible, recent, and varied.
Respect, inclusivity, and kindness go a long way, especially considering the range of experience and exposure that each debater brings to the chamber.
The chamber is as fun as you make it! If it’s starting to get stale and boring for you, it is for me as well. Speakers and PO are encouraged to set the mood, tone, and pacing of the chamber to one that reflects decorum, vigor, and efficiency.
Make every effort to learn correct name pronunciations and pronouns for all individuals.
