Don’t just buy into shit–think. Engage with the reading’s content and with what the author’s intentions are.
Here’s six things to annotate in a text, or in whatever you’re reading:
1. Main Idea
2. Significant Content
3. Key terms (look up stuff you don’t know)
4. Questions you have
5. Moments when you have an emotional response (Is there something particular you like or hate?)
6. Contradictions/ Tensions
