CX (Cross Examination) The "con" argument team questions the pro team's arguments and ideas
1NC (Negative Construction) - The "con" argument team lays down their arguments and attacks the pro team's arguments
CX - (Cross Examination) - The pro argument team questions the con team's arguments and ideas
1AR (Affirmative Rebuttal) - The pro team rebuts their arguments, wrapping up their main points in a last attempt to persuade the judge
1NR (Negative Rebuttal) - Typically the last speech of the debate; the con team rebuts their arguments and attempts to persuade the judge why their right.
