Everyone in extemp has a unique way to prep. Of course, there are some consistencies taught through generations of extempers or (more expensively) through camp such as having a place to write your question, answer, and three tags. But, do you add a section for ‘on-tops’? Associate the color blue with analysis and red with rhetoric?
From different flow structures to varying amounts of colored pens, and even a select few employing digital writing tablets, the range of prep styles is fascinating.
To better understand the vast world of prep styles, we at The Extemper’s Bible have created a quick survey that we want you to fill out. Share it with all the extempers you know. If you’re a captain or other form of leader on your team, make your kids fill it out (please)!
The end date of the form is February 1st. All of the results will be compiled and released in a write-up that’ll see the commonalities in structures and if there are any strange correlations.
