What is required to make an argument true and important
These are two letters given by some very experienced and qualified debaters and judges. Both lectures are given with reference to BP debating so when they say "top half" or "bottom half" they are referring to the 1st government and 1st opposition teams or the 2nd government and second opposition teams respectively.
The first lecture discusses why it is useful to give a clear context to your arguments and how you can use this "framing" tactically in a debate.
The second lecture discusses why assuming a statement or a position is true because it seems obvious or it is generally accepted is a bad strategy in debates. It also shows what type of truisms can be challenged as rebuttal and why it is important to challenge them.
