Reflection: Relevance Introduction To Modernist Literature - Section 3: Reading A New Text


I have been looking for opportunities to help my students see the purpose and value of annotating a text, and this is the closest I have gotten. I used this story to help them see that if we just highlight, we will only be capturing part of this story and that we need to annotate it to get a clear picture of the entire story. These are two examples of what I wanted the second page of this story to look once annotated and highlighted.
