Students responding to eachother’s annotations
Dialogic interactions throughannotations“There is a bad and good thing about this. Bad is it kills birds passing by. Good it makes energy cleaner.” “Tarnished with wind turbines? Arent wind turbines supposed to be a good thing? Why are they complaining about the turbines? it doesnt even look bad.”
Use of annotations for summarywriting I am perplexed in choosing if wind energy is a good courses or bad source. While, wind energy is a good source because it’s renewable and needs nothing more but construction, it can also cause irritation and attention of some people. Wind turbines are loud, noisy, and risky. Even though, it doesn’t cause any greenhouse gases in the air, wind turbines are harmful to wildlife and space. More birds die by getting hit by wind turbines which is very dangerous to our wildlife.
