Annotations
• I used evidence from the first source to tell about the details of Vicks’ arrest • I used evidence from the second source to tell about one of the groups Vick was working with to make up for his past actions • I used evidence from the third source to tell about Vicks’ work with the Humane Society of America • I used evidence from the fourth source throughout the whole slideshow. It had a lot of good biographical information about Vick that was useful in telling his story in the slideshow. • I used some evidence from the last source to talk about Vicks’ days in Atlanta and how much potential he had.
