Annotation

  • Annotation is one way to slow down when reading difficult text so that you can understand it better

  • Annotation includes underlining, highlighting, circling drawing arrows, writing in the margins and asking questions you may have

  • This is helpful because you can go back to each page and scan for your notes when rereading later

  • Things you can annotate:

    • labeling and interpreting literary devices (similes, metaphors)

    • Labeling and explaining writers’ elements of style (tone, language, pace)

    • Labeling main ideas, supportive details, or evidence

    • Writing down questions or connections you come up with while reading


Beginning to annotate
Beginning to Annotate

  • When you are reading and annotating you may find that you read slower. That’s good because you are making sure that you understand before you read the next part.

  • After you annotate for a while you will find a way that works best for you.


What you should annotate

  • Vocabulary—define words or difficult language

  • Figures of Speech: Similes, Metaphors, Puns, etc.

  • Make connections to other parts of the book.

  • • Make connections to other visual and graphic material, such as movies; news events; and books, stories, plays, poems, and so on that you have read.

  • For visual connections, include the artwork, photo, or drawing in the margin (don’t just describe it).
