Annotation Assignment Objective: Practice engaging with written texts for close reading skills ***Important note: You must not be afraid to write in your books! Sticky notes are  another option, but book notes are quicker and more effective. What is annotation? Having a conversation with the text; interacting with the text What is the purpose?   Understand the text,   Track changes or progressions,   Identify areas of interest or concern (terms we are unfamiliar with, questions,  disagreements with the author, agreements with the author, choices the author  makes in content or style that affect the story/essay, etc) HOW TO A. Circle or underline highlight put boxes around (especially using different colors) 1. Main ideas 2. Character/people’s names 3. Vocabulary words 4. Important ideas or events B. LOTS OF NOTES IN THE MARGINS! 1. React to the text – words and/or emoticons: happy, sad, confused, etc 2. Locate important passages and note things the author wants us to know (could  use brackets for this, in addition to notes in the margin) 3. Margin Comments: A. Make a connection B. Track themes/character changes  C. Ask questions/challenge the author D. Think about why an author is including  certain information, how it serves his purpose, how it affects the reader – this also helps you with your own writing. Mimic good writers! Example and Practice: Please find below an example of what you might write in the  margins for Anthony Bourdain’s “Food Is Good” 1. Begin with the title. What clues might the author be giving the reader through this  title? 2. In the margin of each paragraph, jot down a brief note about what the author is doing  in THAT paragraph. Bourdain Example: Paragraph 1 margin comment: Setting the scene/underlying  theme. Family vacation? He’s young. Good description. Mom in Jackie O  sunglasses: 50’s? Paragraphs 2 and 3: Short Sentences POP: must be important Paragraph 4: 4  grader (get his age); Campbell’s soup – connects to  reader/common ground; British waiter – sense of adventure, a little exotic Paragraph 5: Fancy French name for the soup and connection to present day; great description of experience: waiter ladled, silver tureen (classy); chives, not green  onions, garnish, shock that soup was cold. This entire paragraph is describing the  soup. It follows the topic sentence of the paragraph. And etcetera. I would continue to do this work for every paragraph, being careful  to note the overall point of each paragraph. What does it do to serve Bourdain’s  story? Why is it important? After reading and annotating each paragraph (starting with the Title), write down  what you believe to be the author’s theme. Be sure to consider the entire essay.  Often the title, opening paragraph and conclusion are great spots for finding big  hints about the theme, if not the explicit theme itself. WHAT’s DUE? In class on the day this is due, I will check your book annotations. END NOTE: All annotations for this course should follow this format. I might sometimes ask you to do other specific activities with the text, depending on our in­class topic for  the week, but you should always make lots of margin notes and be prepared to share the  theme of the piece, as well as the supporting points. Good luck! Note: there are lots of great YouTube videos available on annotation. Use  technology to your favor.
