    • Kristen,
      You’re on the right track here. For your lock, I think it might help to tie your question more specifically to the reading than presenting a philosophical question. For example, you might want to focus your question on whether Redniss’ text compels readers to think about the link between personal motivation and societal advancement. For your key, I think it would help to explain what you think the link between science and art is and how Redniss specifically addresses. Finally, be sure to keep your key to no longer than 2 sentences.
