Reading Assessment

  • Annotation

    • Annotation means that you will provide explanatory notes about what you read. This helps me know what’s going on inside your head (er, at least as far as the reading is concerned).

    • Annotation will feel a little artificial, especially if you are a strong reader.

Reading Assessment

  • Questions?

  • Please work quietly on your own. I-Pods (or similar music-playing contrivances) are okay so long as they don’t distract you or anyone around you.

    • If you finish before the period ends, please find something else quiet to do.

    • If you don’t finish, there may be more class time this week.
