... and debaters aren't all that different.
Most (close to all) undergrads really want to know what's going to be on the exam. That's the gist of many questions, most of which come down to "is that on the test"?
Hubby is in the middle of developing the topic areas for the debate tournament we helped start.
There's an on-line forum connected to that debate format -- and the on-line discussion is pretty much "is there going to be a resolution about that" -- with the variation of "what's the research I need to do to kick-ass"?
Whether or not they admit it, most debaters like to think they are intellectually superior and less lazy than my CC students. What I can't post on that forum discussion is my opinion that they aren't all that different.
