Class Experience

Teens will have the opportunity to try out the study skill of annotation to evaluate if it would be useful to them in an academic setting.

A one page guide to annotation will be provided before class starts.  A PDF of a reading passage that we will refer to in class will also be provided.  Students are encouraged to bring colored pens, pencils, or highlighters that they can use to annotate text.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students are invited to share their learning challenges, so topics like ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning differences may come up in student sharing.  This class is not intended to provide counseling, just provide a safe supportive environment for learners with ADHD and other learner differences to develop executive function and study skills

The articles and passages shared in class will most likely be instructor developed, but could be from general news and science information related sources.  The annotation strategies were developed based on a blog post by Keys to Literacy. Reference to the original post will be included in the handout so parents can use this resource directly if they wish.  We use the Kahoot! website and app for review.
