ANNOTATION GUIDELINES:


*General annotation guidelines:

Use post-its for your annotations.   Each annotation needs a heading with the following information:  your name, a category, page # where you found the information.   Reference the example below.


Lisa B.      Character Traits     P.3

Ponyboy is insightful.    This becomes clear through his narration

as he walks home from the movies.  He shares an insightful look

into the differences between the Socs and the Greasers.


*Chapters 1-2:  Character traits

Make four annotations per chapter.   Make sure you have the proper heading at the top of each one.   Focus on what you learn about the characters as you read.   Focus each annotation on one specific thing you learn about a character.  Write a minimum of two sentences (What trait?   How do we know this?).   Make sure you name the character.


*Chapter 4:  Key events

Make four annotations for the chapter.  Make sure you have the proper heading at the top of each one.   Focus on key events in the chapter.   Each annotation should be a minimum of two sentences covering the following information:   What’s the event?   Why is it important?


*Chapters 7 & 8:  Discussion questions

Make four annotations per chapter.   Make sure you have the proper heading at the top of each one.  Focus on key events &/or important quotes. Each annotation should be a minimum of two sentences.  At least one sentence should describe the key event or quote.   The second sentence  should be a discussion question to use in class.   Avoid yes/no questions.    Be prepared to share discussion questions with the class/lead a discussion.
