How Do I Annotate A Text? Color Coded Example
Product Description
Oftentimes, when I ask students to annotate a close reading passage, I often get back notes that are one dimensional. Students will focus on one area of reading (summary, questions, etc.) and fail to examine the text on multiple levels.

I use a passage from Sandra Cisneros' The House on Mango Street to illustrate the many types of reading/ annotation that can be done with a very short, very deceptively simple passage.

Annotations are categorized and color-coded to help student comprehension (plus it looks pretty!)
