Annotations and Writing


Identify the purpose for annotating a text.

Annotating is highlighting/underlining text while commenting and writing notes in the margins.



  • Is there a comment next to each line or paragraph highlighted/underlined?
  • Is the comment a reason why you underlined that passage?  The comment is not just a retelling of what you underlined.
  • Does the comment go into further depth, explaining why and/or how this underlined idea is important?
