Three Ways to Annotate: 1) Code reading assignments with your favorite graphic codes. 2) Tag text with a purpose by using color-coded Post-Its. 3) Use academic response stems to interact with the writer/reporter/author. **Annotating helps struggling readers to focus and proficient readers to record ideas for essays. #closereading
