This essay focuses on my current sources . Unlike high school, students in college are expected to read more “academic” type of materials in less time and usually recall the information as soon as the next class.
I’ve attached a document explaining the assignment. Each annotation needs to be at least six sentences long. I currently have 5 sources, but we’re required to find 5 more scholarly sources. After offer is accepted, I’ll send you my current sources so you don’t accidentally replicate one of my current ones. Looking forward to working with you!.
Unlike high school, students in college are expected to read more sources “academic” type of materials in less time and usually recall the information as soon as the next class.
The problem is many students spend hours reading and have no idea what they just read. Their eyes are moving across the page, but their mind is somewhere else. The end result is wasted time, energy, and frustration…and having to read the text again.
Although students are taught how to read at an early age, many are not taught how to actively engage with written text or other media. Annotation is a tool to help you learn how to actively engage with a text or other media sources .
Annotating a text or other media (e.g. a video, image, etc.) 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? Ask questions, challenge, think!
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? You can be critical of the text sources t, but you do not have to be. 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.
