Transcript of "Reading with a pen" palette for annotating texts

The 'Reading with Your Pen' Method V ocab Why anotate texts? Are you confused for annotating texts Easy, right? Anotating a text is the best way to help you actively think about what you're reading and so you can get more out of everything you read.

It helps you build critical thinking skills by "talking back" to the text. with a sentence in the text? Underline a word you don't know (or can't pronounce) and in the margin, write a "V" with a box around it so you can look it up later. though there are officially 20 ways to "read with a pen," we're going to focus on the top ten most effective (several of these are sort of 2-in-1) draw a smiley face when you come across something that makes you laugh or smile, and explain why in the margin UNDERLINE it ...and say why in the margin DRAW a BOX around a sentence you think is the main idea, thesis, or organizing concept of the text you're reading UNDERLINE a sentence you find SURPRISING. Draw exclamation point and say why in the margin. IF the sentence is confusing or you have a question about it, underline it and draw a QUESTION MARK. draw a little lightbulb and then write a specific comment about an idea you had while reading the sentence you found useful or what it made you think about. C Make a comment next to a sentence or paragraph that you can make a connection to in your own life. Have you experienced the same thing? Maybe you learned about the subject in another class... DRAW A STAR in the margin next to a word or concept that you learned about in another class or another part of your life. Write what you remember about it. Remember that you can use the ones that help you the most. The more you use them, the more they will help your reading comprehension and your ability to write better papers faster. Sketch the text at the end of a page, section, or chapter. Draw an image to help you remember main idea, characterization, and/or setting. Make an ASTERISK * when you find a sentence or passage that you can connect to your own life, or to something you've read in the news S _? * (?.) Write a question or make a statement about something you've read in the margin. Draw a line to the relevant part of the text. You could make a prediction about what is going to happen or maybe the author is foreshadowing an event that you notice.
