Online Assignment #5: More Annotation Studio

Since there’s no class on September 24th, we’ll have an online meeting instead using Annotation Studio.  I have uploaded all three of the texts for this assignment and saved them to our class account, and each of you will make two comments on each literary work. One comment for each document should respond to a comment that a classmate has made.

NOTE: I will be in Germany for a conference from the 22nd until the 26th. Germany’s time zone is six hours ahead of ours, and I’ll be in panels much of the time I’m gone, so expect a sizable delay between when you email me with questions and when I respond. Make sure you plan ahead and don’t try to email me a few hours before the project is due.

How to Add Comments:

  1. Click on the title of one of the documents.
  2. Click and drag to highlight text you want to comment on.
  3. A little icon of a pencil should appear. Click the pencil.
  4. Type your comment in the pop-up box.
  5. Click the checkbox labeled “Allow my groups to view this annotation.”
  6. To add a website link in your comment, click the icon of a chain link and paste the URL into the field labeled “URL.”
  7. To add a picture into your comment, click the icon of a picture with mountains, Under “Source,” paste the URL of the picture.
  8. NOTE: To get the URL of a picture, follow these directions:
  9. When you’ve finished adding your comment, click the “Save” button.

Comments should:

  1. Be at least two sentences long.
  2. Be specific (Don’t just write “I like this,” or “I agree,” or “I disagree”).
  3. Focus in detail on some aspect of the literary work: imagery of London, repetition, rhyme, meter, punctuation, personification, purpose of a rhetorical question, or characterization.
  4. One comment for each document should respond to a classmate’s comment.

Due Date:

All comments are due by noon on Sept. 24th at 3:15pm.
