What is annotation?

Annotation is a conversation with text through bits and pieces of writing. Annotating develops a deeper understanding of abstract ideas and encourages original thoughts. It is used to teach students of all ages to practice close reading and analytical writing. This difficult challenge requires focused attention, comprehension, and analysis—three hard-to-teach language skills.

How does it help?

Annotation BookMarks guides students through annotation. Successful annotation requires a great deal of underlying skill, necessitating time and practice. Therefore, students need multiple opportunities to practice annotation across all genres.
