For this assignment, you need to select pages from a textbook or article, read and annotate the pages, and then create a set of notes based on the material you read and annotated.

Step 3:  Read and annotate your selected textbook pages or article.  Your annotations may be handwritten, typed, or electronically produced.  Annotations could include underlining or highlighting along with other annotations.  Highlights should not exceed 10-15% of your page.  You may choose to color code as you annotate.  Keep in mind that underlining and highlighting are not enough.  Other annotations are required; choose from: 

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

Your annotations should demonstrate your active involvement with the reading.  Example of an annotated text: http://faculty.bucks.edu/specpop/annotate-ex.htm (Links to an external site.) 
 
Step 4:  Next, create a separate, detailed page of notes over the material you read and annotated. Your notes may be handwritten or typed. Use one of the following note-taking methods: Cornell Format, Outline Format or List Format. Read Chapter 5 for details. 
Step 5:  Submit BOTH your annotated pages and your set of notes in the assignment link.  If you are taking this course online, you will 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.
