The Misunderstood Magic of Annotation, the Powerhouse Tool for Reading, Writing, Revising

Teachers of Grades 9-12

June 10-13 - 9:00am - 3:15pm daily

Here’s the thing: annotation is magic. Yes, magic is a strong word, but if any literacy tool deserves to be called magic, annotation is it. Few literacy tools offer teachers and students as much power as annotation, yet it remains a misunderstood, misused and underused strategy. In this four day course, we will examine the myths surrounding annotation, explore multiple dynamic methods of annotation, including ways to integrate technology and voice recording. We’ll explore how to use annotation to deepen and challenge our thinking. Then we’ll then dive into how to teach students to use annotation as a transformational revision tool to improve their own writing.

Each morning will be interactive whole group and small group lessons and activities which you can take back to your classroom. We’ll read and write, creating models for you to use with your students next year. The afternoon will provide time to develop lessons tailored to your instructional context, supported by fellow participants and the program leader.
