 #Disco2019: The Impact of
Media and Popular Culture on
          Society

      Minnesota State High School League

Overview of Discussion
“Problem-solving Discussion is an effort on the part of a small group to reach a
solution to a problem through informal interchange of facts, inferences, and
judgments. This method of discussion seeks consensus rather than majority
rule. The focus of this event should be the encouragement of cooperation and
critical thinking to arrive at the collective goal of better understanding and
problem solving.” (MSHSL Rules and Policies Manual)
The purpose and goal of the category of Discussion is to help students learn critical
thinking skills, what constitutes quality research, effective group communication tactics,
and   problem-solving   techniques.   Discussion   emphasizes    that   participants   utilize
consensus building tools to accomplish their goals. Encouraging a thoughtful exchange
of substantive information, positive group interactions, and full participation by all
should be the goal of every coach, student, and judge involved in this category. Game-
playing and confrontational verbal (or non-verbal) tactics should be dissuaded.

               Overview of This Year’s Topic
The commonly      accepted definition of media is: “the primary means of mass
communication (broadcasting, publishing, and the Internet), regarded collectively.”
While broad, that definition has some coherence. The definition of popular culture has
a little more ambiguity: “culture based on the tastes of ordinary people rather than an
educated elite.” In our day of globally-instantaneous communication and quickly-shifting
cultural tastes, the impact of those two terms have, by some analyses, become
essentially synonymous.    Agree or disagree with that sentiment, it is difficult to argue
that the two do not have a tremendous impact on global societal functions. This year’s
topic will assess how the two are influencing the direction of society, both nationally and
globally, and what can be done to lessen negative influences.
TASK INFORMATION

                 Tasks at Invitational Tournaments
While the Minnesota State High School League does not limit the use of topic areas
used for Discussion at invitational speech tournaments, the Discussion Committee
recommends the following schedule to give students experience with all parts of the
outline:
   ● Start of Regular Invitational Season – February 16: Section Topics
   ● February 17 – Last Regular Season Invitational: Subsection Topics
   ● State Tournament Tasks – Students should be prepared for tasks from both areas
     of the outline.
Tournament Managers Please Note: Whether or not you choose to follow the above
schedule, it is vital that you communicate to your participating schools which part(s) of
the outline you will use and how you will be organizing your Discussion rounds.

     Tasks at Subsection and Section Tournaments
Tasks for subsection and section tournaments will follow the procedure instituted in the 2016
season – Tournaments will no longer receive a full slate of tasks from which to choose.
Instead they will receive a set of four or five tasks for those tournaments. Those tasks will be
date specific (unique to one or two sets of tournaments) and will not be repeated at other
tournaments.

While the actual tasks shall not be shared beforehand with teams competing at subsection or
section tournaments, the specific outline sub-points used will be sent with the sets and must
communicated to all coaches in your sub or section. For example – “Our subsection
tournament will use Area 1, Sub-points A, C, D, J.”

                        Tasks at State Tournament
State tournament tasks will follow the same procedure as previous seasons. Separate sets
will be written for each day and chosen at random for each round of competition. Participants
should be prepared for tasks from both areas of the outline.
