Annotation notes[1]

  1. 1. ANNOTATION/ SUMMARY BY: LALINDA STREET Developmental Reading - DVR 0061
  2. 2. VisualConnection Does the cover art ever influence what books you read? What does this cover imply about the novel? Why do books for adults readers seldom have illustrations? Do you create pictures in your mind when you read? How else do you interact with text you read? Do you ever write notes in textbooks as you read?
  3. 3. Manage Your College Reading: Highlight, Annotate, and Make Marginal Notes • Highlighting – Annotating - Marginal Notes are three active reading strategies that ask you to think and make decisions as you read
  4. 4. Steps for Marking a text • 1. Preview • 2. Read • 3. Determine author’s purpose • 4. Determine the topic • 5. Determine the pattern of organization • 6. Determine the main idea • 7. Go back and mark the text
  5. 5. Highlighting • Highlighting allows for important information to stand out, however never highlight too much. ▫ Decide what is important  Topic sentence and major supporting details  Highlight all boldface information  Chapter titles  Headings  Subheadings  Key vocabulary
  6. 6. ANNOTATION • What is Annotation?  What word is found within Annotation
  7. 7. Annotation Introduction • Annotation means to write a brief, useful notes in your own words in the margins next to the next. This requires you to become an active reader ▫ Annotation allows for you to connect to the text on a personal level. For instances, writing comments such as I disagree, No way, Amazing etc. • Read the text and clarify what you need to know • Reread the portion you need to annotate
  8. 8. ANNOTATION Mark – restating information in the margins and using symbols ▫ T for thesis; MI for main idea; EX for examples; S for summary; DEF for definition; 1, 2, 3 for major points; F for fact; I for opinion; ? For items to be clarified, and * for important concepts. Underline judiciously.
  9. 9. ANNOTATION • Use marking with annotations to indicate the organization of ideas. Think about the text structure (ie. examples, cause and effect, etc.) Your margin annotations will often refer to these structures. • Ex. (Examples) • Causes/Effects • 1 2 3 etc. to indicate lists, steps, etc. • Brackets • Arrows to connect ideas • 5. Mark TERMS and definitions. • Def. • Use circles or boxes to emphasize terms • 6. Put an * by important information. • Put a ? By confusing information • However it is good to create your own marking symbols to assist with your learning
  10. 10. Student’s System of Annotation Main or key point * ________ Important supporting detail √________ Word to know or define word Definition of a word Defn. Numbering of points 1, 2, 3 Questions or confusion ? Marginal Notes Ex., Def, Cz (cause), Ef (Effects or results) Topic, Prob Reread this portion for better understanding R.R. Definitely a test question T.Q. I like this idea  I disagree 
  11. 11. ANNOTATION • As part of the DO stage, determine the THESIS of the article. • The thesis may be located near the end of the introduction or in the concluding paragraph, or it may be unstated. WRITE the thesis in your own words at the top of the reading selection.
  12. 12. ANNOTATION • Determine a MAIN IDEA for each major paragraph. • If the main idea is directly stated, underline it. • Write MI in the margin beside each main idea. If a main idea is not directly stated, write it in your own words in the margin
  13. 13. ANNOTATION • Mark MAJOR SUPPORTING IDEAS. There are several ways to mark supporting ideas. • Use a combination of margin annotations, symbols, and underlining of brief phrases. • (Be careful not to underline too many details. Too much underlining is worse than none!)
  14. 14. ANNOTATION • Use ANNOTATIONS to record your thinking: • Write brief summary notes to emphasize points made in graphics. • Write brief answers to your questions in the margins. • Make a brief outline of the material in the margins. • Summarize important points in your own words in the margins. • State the CONCLUSION in your own words at the end of the article. Write “Conclusion” in the margin.
  15. 15. Annotation (recap continued) • Note relationship of text structure patterns • Restate information in graphics • Tag confusing ideas you need to clarify • Review your annotation.
