Encourage your students to improve their close reading skills by teaching them to annotate text with this simple sticky-note procedure. This single-sheet handout gives examples of rich and weak annotated comments along with helpful suggestions to guide students who aren’t sure what they should be writing about when they’re asked to annotate a book.
The sheet was designed for students to keep intact in their binders or to slice up and use as a bookmark during reading time.
This download is a 1-page PDF (uneditable).
