For this assignment, you need to
select pages
from a textbook,
read and annotate
the pages, and then
create a set of notes
based on the material you read and annotated.
Step 1: Review the marking (annotating) strategies from Chapter 6
(pp. 134-136).
Step 2:
Select at least
four
consecutive pages
from one of your college textbooks.
You may select the textbook for this course (except pp. 129-133) or another textbook; however,
no math textbooks are allowed for this assignment.
Step 3:
Read and
mark your
annotations
directly on
the
selected textbook pages.
Your annotations may be handwritten (see
example
(Links to an external site.))
or electronically produced (see
directions
below).
Your annotations should demonstrate your
active involvement
with the reading.
Annotations should be
varied
and should appear
throughout your selected pages.
Use
each of
the following annotation types
at least once
or more:
summarizing or paraphrasing in the margins
identifying key terms
defining unknown terms
jotting down questions that occur to you as you read
jotting down your reactions to the material
adding explanations or elaboration
providing additional examples
underlining and highlighting (no more than 10-15
% of your pages)
color coding portions
*Add your name, the semester and year in which you are enrolled, and the professor’s name at the top of the first page of annotated text.
Step 4:
Next,
create a separate, detailed
set
of notes
over the same material you read and annotated.
The
set of
notes should be
thorough, covering all
major information
in the
selected
pages.
Your notes may be handwritten or typed.
Use
one of the following note-taking methods (read
Chapter 5):
Cornell Format
Outline Format
List Format
*Add your name, the semester and year in which you are enrolled, and the professor’s name at the top of the first page of your set of notes.
Step 5:
Submit
BOTH
your
annotated
textbook
pages
and
your set of notes
in the assignment link.
If you are taking this course online, you may need to
scan or take a photo of any
handwritten annotations or notes
before uploading.
If you are taking this course in a face-to-face setting, your professor may require you to submit your work in class.
