Begin by reading the following text:
• UNC Handout on “Annotating Texts”
Then, print, read, and annotate the following texts:
• Paulo Freire’s “The Importance of the Act of Reading”
• Amy Tan’s “Mother Tongue”
• bell hooks’ “Talking Back”
• Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa’s “Terra Firma”
• Trevor Noah’s “Chameleon”
Select a passage of at least a page and no more than two pages of just one of the course readings above. Use the annotation handout (and additional ideas below) to mark up the text, showing ample engagement with the author’s ideas. Your annotations should feature highlighting, underlining, circling, paraphrasing, questioning, drawing, and/or any ways of visibly showing your attempts to grapple with or comprehend the text.
Take a picture of your 1-2 pages of annotations, and embed them into your post here. Write 200 words or more to describe your approach and style of annotation for us.How would we decode the markings you make on the page? What approaches to annotation do you already know or are you implementing to become a more active reader?
To better understand how to upload an image to Canvas, please click on “How to Embed Images” and follow the directions. You must first upload your image file to your course files and then upload the image to the discussion board.
Be sure to come back to this forum a few times to check out the annotations of some of your classmates and get ideas on how different students approach the task of annotation.
Some additional notes and ideas to get you started:
As noted in the handout, annotating a text is as much about you as it is the text you are annotating. What are YOUR responses to the author’s writing, claims and ideas? What are YOU thinking as you consider the work? Use the white space around a text to paraphrase, ask questions, challenge, and think alongside the author.
When we annotate an author’s work, our minds should encounter the mind of the author, openly and freely. If you met the author at a party, what would you like to tell to them? What would you like to ask them? What do you think they would say in response to your comments? If you are annotating properly, you often begin to get ideas that have little or even nothing to do with the topic you are annotating. That’s fine: it’s all about generating insights and ideas of your own. Any good insight is worth keeping because it may make for a good essay or research paper later on.
You can get ideas for what to annotate and use those annotations by…
• Predicting what the material will be about
• Questioning the material to further understanding
• Determining what’s important
• Identifying key vocabulary
• Summarizing the material in your own words, and
• Monitoring comprehension (understanding) during and after engaging with the material
