The 1AC

The 1AC is an entirely canned speech that consists of a few parts -- Inherency, Harms/Advantages, and Solvency.

Inherency proves the plan is not being supported (or is not being adequately supported now)

Harms/significance prove that without the plan there will be significant problems.  For example, without adopting a new education policy there will be inequality and economic problems.

The plan is the basic outline of what policy the affirmative is arguing should be adopted.

Solvency says that the proposed policy will work to solve the arms.

In Policy debate, each part of the 1AC is supported by evidence . . .
