Reading Guide Stepsheet

With the Reading Guide, students see you–the content expert–in conversation with another content expert.  Some tips to remember:

  • Be conversational. Write as you if you were speaking to your students in class.
  • Avoid commenting on every paragraph. Be strategic in the content and text you want to annotate. What do you want them to remember, most of all? 
  • You don’t have to provide comments in-text. While it can help students to see comments in relation to one another, sometimes the software or content you assign doesn’t allow editing. Assigning a worksheet with questions and considerations can work just as well.
