Karly- So far so good, it would seem. You do a nice job of summing up the two articles you have annotated thus far. Did the annotation for the Ball article get cut off? I think it is nice that the first article has student testimony. This is essential to showing the positive affects of the arts.

Just a nit-picky question about citation format: in your word doc, you do have italics for your journal and database title, right? And a question I was wondering about: Can we abbreviate ERIC and LISTA? Because I did. . . Maybe we should ask Deb?
