How to Find Your Thoughts

17 Feb

1. Annotate the reading — Write notes, mark important sections, notice patterns, parallels, connections, pose questions

2. Discuss — Bring up your annotations in class, ask questions, share things you’ve noticed, make connections between reading and other things (other readings, movies, current events, your life, etc.)

3. Write — Review your annotations and notes because you never really know what you think until you see what you have said; use the writing process from idea generating through planning, outlining, drafts, revising, and editing; then push yourself to articulate one thought at a time — down the road you will construct these into a well planned network of ideas.
