Summary Directions: Carefully read the article/s given to you by your instructor.

        1. Annotate each article/s to help you understand the main ideas. You may want to annotate for strong ideas, confusing ideas, and/or ideas you disagree with. You may also want to write notes in the margins to help you remember why you marked those sections.
