    Re: colons: semicolons;

    The grade level I was thinking of was at least high school because that's the age for the topics it's discussing. I really don't see how I can get it higher than maybe 6 or 7--I'm just not that good at grammar at this point. Readability level I guess should be as high as possible, with a good h.s. grade level? I've studied a lot of different kinds of assessments, so I get the just of what they are as I learn about these things 'on my own'... but I want it to be something that gives the kids a good learning lesson in the actual reading, as well as the social topics discussed.

    Thank you for letting me know about the Chicago style Gary. I didn't realize that fact--I was taught in APA. I have a bit of info. on Chicago, and will be seeking out more books on it. The oddest thing of all to me, is with all the research I've done, in books and online, I never came across one single instance where they mentioned it was Chicago style. They would explain it all out--margins this and that, but never just said Chicago style... odd.

    Cammy,

    The latest edition (15th) is expensive. A used copy runs $24 + shipping from Amazon.

    Most of the time, I get the answers I need from the CMOS online FAQ:

    Best,
