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.
