Transcript of Annotating Text

So how can we help our students better engage with the text they read?

Introducing a simple strategy that can be adapted for any content area and any kind of text...
We read mechanically. We read the words, but we won't remember what we read.

We get confused and quit.

We aren't interested in the topic, usually because we see no connection to our own lives.

Layout issues.

Issues with Reading
Prepare to try it.
Print the Article "Getting Started with Disciplinary Literacies" that was posted with this link on our Strategies Discussion Forum.

I left notes in the article itself about what to read and what to skip....pay attention to those!


Adding annotations
Use these simple codes as you read the text.
What happens when we read challenging texts
Often we try to highlight. Here is what can happen....



Reading and connecting with texts
Annotating Text
Text Annotation
Annotating with text codes is a helpful way to have students interact with a text without highlighting the entire piece.


Once taught text codes help students pull out what is most important and engage in discussions/ conversation more effectively.


What will your paper look like?
Let's try it
Read "Getting Started with Disciplinary Literacies" that was posted with this link on our Strategies Discussion Forum.

I left notes in the article itself about what to read and what to skip....pay attention to those!

As you read use our annotations...


Other content areas?
Develop annotations that reflect your discipline and the habits of mind in your discipline.

For example, in Social Studies:
# - facts
@ - attitude/ opinion of the writer
* - source(s) of information

In Mathematics:
? - why is this information here?
& - added information
XX - connections to rules/ theorems
! - new algorithm/ concept
