Hi! This chart works great as a way to have students annotate a text. These symbols help the students connect more deeply with what they are reading. I usually have the students annotate a text on the second reading. If they can't write on the text, they could write these symbols on post-its and place the post-its on their text. I hope you find this useful and your students enjoy using thesymbols, as well. I have included a color copy and a black and white copy.
