      Margin notes are just that – notes you write in the margins, around the actual article on the sheet of paper while reading. Anytime you find one of the ACTIVE READING BEHAVIORS occur, you write it down on the paper. They are called ACTIVE because you do this while you are actively reading the article, not after you’re done.

      For instance, anytime while reading you CONNECT what you’re reading to your own life, another text, any thing at all you have experienced – you write your connection down. Consider this… What if you read something that refers to CIVIL RIGHTS, or the town of Birmingham comes up in the article, and you’ve read, The Watson’s Go to Birmingham? You write down that connection.

      OR if you read something and in your mind, you make a prediction, you write that prediction down right then and there. Say you’re reading an article about a parent who left his infant in the car for hours. The guy was arrested, and a court date is set. You get all this out of the article. You may PREDICT that they guy will be convicted of murder. You write that down.

      You do this active writing for all the ACTIVE READING BEHAVIORS that occur:
      CONNECTIONS – personal connections such as text to self, text to text, text to movie, text to music, and text to anything so long as the connection is through your experience.
      PREDICTIONS – anytime you think you know what the OUTCOME will be for anything you read about.
      VISUALIZATIONS – anytime something in the text helps you imagine something related to the FIVE SENSES.
      QUESTIONS – anytime you have a question come up because of anything in the text. This could be a question because of something CONFUSING that you highlighted. Use the 3-4 page pack with QUESTIONS FOR THE COMPREHENSION OF . . . Inside that pack, you’ll find questions for fiction and NONfiction…The Article of the Week is NONfiction. Dig in!
      CLARIFICATIONS – anytime something that WAS confusing is CLEARED UP, or CLARIFIED.
      EVALUATIONS – anytime your form an opinion BECAUSE of the text. This happens when you add up what you’ve read, understand it, and have an opinion about what you now know.

      Write them all around the article on the paper.

      Cool?
