Product Description

Students learn about the purposes and techniques of annotation by examining text closely and critically. They study sample annotations and identify the purposes annotation can serve.

Purposeful Annotations:

  • give definitions to difficult and unfamiliar words.
  • gives background information, especially explaining customers, traditions, and ways of living that may be unfamiliar to the reader.
  • summarizes paragraphs in 9 words or less.

Techniques for Annotations:

  • Only markup materials that belong to you
  • Read with a pencil in your hand

  • Go back and answer questions and define unknown words
