Some thoughts about annotating texts:
- It's time to have a system! You can use highlighters, symbols, or a combination of underlining/circling. What matters is consistency--adopt this system for reading not only literature/NF in English class, but also history, science, etc.
- What to look for:
- unfamiliar vocabulary
- parts that are confusing or need clarification
- parts that showcase the author's writing style
- important ideas or takeaways from the text: What are we supposed to learn or realize here?
