When annotating, students engage deeply with a text and make their thinking visible while reading. By focusing their Attention on reading with a purpose, students identify and analyze the components of a text. Students can annotate to highlight the structure, arguments, or evidence; make connections and inferences; and question the text, which helps build their Critical Literacy.
