it First question to make the paragraph flow most smoothly

00:51

Where should sentence one be placed All right well think

00:56

about this so sentence ones go back right here It

00:59

is the making of connections through a rich arts inclusive

01:03

curriculum that ultimately empowers a student to develop convictions and

01:08

subsequently or linkages or whatever All you can do is

02:10

cut and paste the sentence they're talking about You can't

02:13

02:25

that you you know actually could do to get a

02:28

job and pay your rent in the real world So
