Title: Teaching structure through annotation
Post by: kkiarie on April 17, 2019, 09:06:36 PM
We often give students samples of texts hoping that they will model their writing from them. However students may not know what to look for in samples. In my experience, students often focus on the language and not the structure. I think giving students an annotated sample before giving them annotating homework would help them understand the expectations better. I am attaching an annotated article I found on http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/modeling-academic-writing-through-1133.html?tab=4#tabs (http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/modeling-academic-writing-through-1133.html?tab=4#tabs)
