Annotating a text
HOW TO ACCESS DEEPER LEVELS OF
LITERATURE
Annotating
 S speaker (narrator, point of view)
 A atmosphere (mood, tone, setting, tensions)
 D diction
 F figurative language (simile, metaphor, etc.)
 I imagery (patterns, i.e. motifs)
 T tone
Annotating
 The key is marking enough to be helpful, but not so
much that it is distracting
 When in doubt, think STOP SAD FIT
 S symbol
 T theme
 O organization (chapters, sections, narrator, etc.)
 P progression (shifts or changes, chronology, etc.)
Another way…
 FLIT
 F: Form
 L: Language
 I: Image
 T: Tone
Annotating
 Quality over quantity
 This is not an exercise in labeling everything
 No “credit” for literary “name dropping”
 Sample QUALITY annotating:
3 “Layers” of Text
 Identify the literary device
 What is the immediate impact/idea conveyed?
 What is the greater significance to the work as a
whole?
Practice with a poem…
 “O no! it is an ever-fixed mark”
 1. allusion to North Star
 2. permanent guide, assurance of safety (nautical)
 3. Love is eternal and true
What does this look like in your book?
 Share with a neighbor your annotations from “Every
Little Hurricane”
