Affirmative Case assignment
Resolved: That the United States federal government should adopt a policy of constructive engagement, including the removal of all or nearly all economic sanctions, with the government(s) of one or more of the following nation-states: Cuba, Iraq, North Korea.
Write an affirmative case that affirms the resolution above. The case should be long enough to fulfill all of the burdens of the Affirmative, but short enough to be read in 8 minutes.
The affirmative case is worth a 100 points and will be graded on:
- the quality of the individual evidence [see Unit Three]
- the quality of the arguments you construct with the evidence [see Unit Four]
- how well your case meets the prima facie burdens of Topicality, Significance, Inherency and Solvency
Before constructing the case, read the advice given in the Unit Four lecture, print out the case format to follow and read more about affirmative case theory at the sites linked below.
You can mail your typed affirmative case to:
HSU Box 7834
Henderson State University
Arkadelphia, AR 71999-0001
Or you can type your case with Microsoft Word (or a compatible word processing program) and send it as an E-mail attachment.
