This is a short lesson on how to annotate a text. It has been used primarily in an English classroom so far, but it could easily be used in any subject!
Annotating a text is a great literacy and study tool, but many students are unfamiliar with it.
The PowerPoint introduces the concept of annotating along with a visual example, offers an opportunity to address student concerns about writing in books, offers suggestions for strategies (such as creating your own symbols), and concludes with a prompt to practice annotating a text in class.
