6 RHETORICAL READING Highlighting – Annotating - Marginal Notes
Three active reading strategies that ask you to think and make decisions as you read

7 HIGHLIGHTING TIPS Important passages Names of people
Unfamiliar vocabulary Quotable lines Key research, statistics & facts Themes & main ideas

8 READING WITH PURPOSE: ANNOTATION
GET COLLEGE READY WITH CLOSE READING

9 ANNOTATION GUIDE Number the paragraphs
Common Core standards require students to cite and refer to the text Number the paragraphs to facilitate this task.

10 ANNOTATION SHORT HAND # = Info, statistic or research
                                                                 ? = Question or unsure of meaning * = Important [ ] = Quotable # = Info, statistic or research ___= New vocabulary

11 MAKING NOTES IN MARGINS
Write definitions Ask questions Translate ideas into your own words Capture emotional reactions Make connections… other books, classes, life experiences Summarize Comment on ideas Predict what will happen

12 READING STRATEGY Chunk the text Break up the text into smaller chunks.
Draw a horizontal line between the introduction, body paragraphs and conclusion. Ask the student to justify the “chunks.”

13 Read with Purpose Circle Key Terms Names of sources Power verbs
Words that are defined Terms that are repeated throughout the text Names of sources Power verbs Figurative language

14 WHAT DOES THE AUTHOR SAY?
Summarize each chunk in the left margin. The chunking allows the student to look at the text in smaller segments and summarize what the author is saying.   

15 RECORD YOUR THINKING Write brief summary notes to emphasize points made in graphics Write brief answers to your questions in the margins. Make a brief outline of the material in the margins. Summarize important points in your own words in the margins. State the CONCLUSION in your own words at the end of the article. Write “Conclusion” in the margin.

16 WHAT IS THE AUTHOR DOING?
In the right margin, describe what the author is doing. Use power verbs, such as describing, illustrating, arguing, etc. Represent the information with a picture Dig deeper into the text to analyze connections

17 STEPS FOR MARKING A TEXT
Tech Twist: Use Google Comment 1. Preview 2. Read 3. Determine author’s purpose 4. Determine the topic 5. Determine the pattern of organization 6. Determine the main idea 7. Go back and mark the text

18 GUIDED PRACTICE ANNOTATING –Article:
“If you want to go to college, learn to Fail” 1. What is the topic of this article? 2. How is the article structured? 3. Why did the author write the article? 4. What is the most important point about the article?

19 CHUNK THE TEXT Introduction What is the author’s purpose?

20 Body Paragraphs Cite evidence the author uses to prove his assertion

21 CONCLUSION What emotion does the author appeal to (pathos)?

22 WANT TO GET TO COLLEGE? LEARN TO FAIL!
Pair Share: Prediction – What is the author’s purpose? Want to Get Into College? Learn to Fail Education Week, February 1, 2012 By Angel B. Pérez Genre: Commentary 1 I ask every student I interview for admission to my institution, Pitzer College, the same question, “What do you look forward to the most in college?” I was stunned and delighted recently when a student sat across from me at a Starbucks in New York City and replied, “I look forward to the possibility of  failure.” Of course, this is not how most students respond to the question when sitting before the person who can make decisions about their academic  futures, but this young man took a risk.

23 WANT TO GET TO COLLEGE? LEARN TO FAIL!
Pair Share: Whose perspective is addressed? 2 “You see, my parents have never let me fail,” he said. “When I want to take  a chance at something, they remind me it’s not a safe route to take. Taking a  more rigorous course or trying an activity I may not succeed in, they tell me,  will ruin my chances at college admission. Even the sacrifice of staying up late  to do something unrelated to school, they see as a risk to my academic work  and college success.”
