The first annotation is due Monday, March 10. Here are the instructions on how to annotate:
1. Annotations need to be done on a clean photocopy of the reading that I assign. If your textbook has readings that are marked up , then you can get a clean copy by checking out the textbook from the library. Go to the circulation desk and ask for it. If that doesn’t work for you, find a student that has a book with clean readings and photocopy what you need.
2. Use some of the techniques we worked with on pages 10 & 11 in Q: Skills. You don’t have to annotate every single paragraph. There might be a paragraph that really doesn’t add anything essential to the topic.
3. You at least have to indicate the key points and examples and circle the new vocabulary and define it in English.
5. On the back of the reading write a statement about the author’s main point. This should only be a few sentences.
6. In addition, on the back of the reading, write your reaction or opinion about the article or something in it. This should only be a few sentences.
Don’t worry about hitting all the main ideas, just make an honest effort to do the activity
