Last but certainly not least is an answer key! The key provides potential answers for every question asked in every chapter. This includes comprehension quiz questions. It also includes potential answers for the analytic questions. Of course, not all analytic questions have just one answer! Part of the strength of the analysis question is the room they leave for students to demonstrate their unique thinking. Therefore, use the answers at your discretion but know they provide a solid foundation of the type of performance that make for quality work.
