How to annotate non fiction text

  1. 1. Marking a passage as you read helps you become an ACTIVE reader – it keeps you AWAKE. It helps you REMEMBER the conversation you had with the text. It also helps you study, it helps you think of questions to ask in class, and it helps you UNDERSTAND what you are reading.
  2. 2. What does “annotate” mean?Annotation is a method of writing down your ideas of a text: To trace your reading (setting purpose, asking questions, connecti ng, summarizing, in ferring) To develop your understanding of literary/ historical analysis (plot, figurative, themati c, events, places)
  3. 3. Good annotations will have a balance of written ideas of Your own thoughts, connections and ideas With Your understanding of the author’s ideas and intentions
  4. 4. •Question marks, exclamation points, smilies, other emoticons •Underline or highlight key words/phrases, draw arrows •Summarize in margins •Bracket important selections •Cross-reference to other parts of text •Comments – agree or disagree •Personal connections •Random associations (this reminds me of) •Circle/underline figurative devices • Underline dates and important people and places
