(1) How has the additional one minute of Summary speech time affected Public Forum debates? We like the additional time. We feel that the summary has become a bigger player in the debate and students will learn to use it more strategically in the future.
(2) How has the additional one minute of prep time affected Public Forum debates? I think it makes for better partnerships and collaboration between the students.
(3) Have the revised evidence paraphrasing rules caused a substantial change in practice? If so, please describe the positive or negative change. In Michigan we are not seeing a substantial change at all.
(4) Has the revised Grand Crossfire language caused a substantial change in practice? If so, please describe the positive or negative change. We appreciate the back and forth requirement, but we are still in favor of getting rid of Grand Cross. We don’t see the value so late in the debate.

(6) Are you in favor of the 3 min prep time rule being passed as the official PF event rules? (Yes/No) Yes
