  5. HOW Do You Do This? • Read actively! • Promise self to ENGAGE in the text. • Adjust pace accordingly. • What relevance do you see to this text? • Annotate those connections in the margin. • Statements • Questions

  6. Writing in Margins • Annotations should be written in the margins. • NOT highlighted. • NOT simply underlined. • Something powerful about reading something, then THINKING about it just enough to decide WHAT to write in the margins. • That process is cut short when all you do is highlight or underline.
