Key Points
Words to look up
Is having a conversation with the writer,the same can be said for writing as well.

NOT Substantive
What's so special about Annotating?
Annotating gives the student the opportunity to
dig deeper into a text and further their understanding of what the writer is saying, and what they are trying to convey through their writing.

At the word level, the classic example of prediction is: "Once upon a ______"
Writing in the Margins- Reaction in the margins increases the students awareness of moment-by-moment response to individual statements
and examples.
Reading- the action or skill of reading written or printed matter silently or aloud
Writing- the activity or skill of marking coherent words on paper and composing text.
What Annotating is not
It's not stating obvious observations
It's Actually dissecting the text
Let's see what this looks Like.. ->
Redundancy-Prior knowledge.
Combine the two and you learn that a reader must be skilled in the act of understanding prior knowledge in order to comprehend what the text is saying.
Annotation-Interaction between the reader and the text.
What is annotating? you say...
Filling in the gaps-Salvatori states that "The reading process, then, is an extremely complicated activity in which the mind is at one and the same time relaxed and alert, expanding meanings as it selects and modifies them, confronting the
blanks(i.e. gaps)
and filling them with constantly modifiable projections produced by inter-textual(outside the text) and intra-textual(inside The text) connections.
Look at the title of the text.
"The book was well wr_____"

idk, really

"If you _____?"
"Today,the weather is ________"
According to Salvatori ,"The structure of a sentence can clue a reader to expect a certain part of speech to appear next".
Basically any question that comes to mind while reading. It can be about a statement, way of writing, something you disagree with, structure etc.
Main points are often the topic sentences in the opening sentence,but they can sometimes be found at the end or in the middle of a paragraph.
Asking yourself what is the author saying?
What is the text communicating?
Why would this be important to me?
How can I connect this, or relate this to something else?
Set aside supporting details.
Carefully read through the text

Im not quite sure where to put this
All of these examples allow you to understand annotating as well as give you the tools to do it correctly. Also, after seeing how each author gave us a different perspective on writing, this gives the student a different view of how to effectively annotate an article. With the different takes on writing, from our authors, the students are given clear examples on how to successfully grasp the information provided through an educated process of interpreting an article.
