The Core (Day 15)

In writing cases for Team Policy Debate, I encourage students to be able to explain their entire 8 minute case into one sentence; or better yet, an even shorter “bumper sticker” phrase. It is quite a challenge – but not impossible.

Once they are able to identify that core message or thesis statement, then the rest of the case is built around that core idea.

As a writer or speaker, what is your core message? Each speech or essay or blog post should contain one main idea. Build the rest of the essay or story around that core theme. Many ideas may seem important– but not all ideas are best included in one piece.

Keep it simple and stick to the core, or main idea, of your message.









Thank you friend, I love to hear from you...
