How To Annotate Informational Text. When annotating informational text, we have to do 7 simple things. 1. Note Author's Purpose. (Explain, Inform, Persuade) To find the Author's Purpose: If the author is trying to get you to agree with them this is considered persuasion. When the author is writing about a certain topic and informing you this is known as informational text. You can label this at the top of your paper. 2. Note organization pattern Chronological Order: You can find this out by seeing if there are certain times and dates therefore it being chronological order. Ex. Biography Logical Order is considered when the writer guides the reader idea to idea in a order that makes sense. Ex.
