Storyboard Text

  • I sometimes wonder what the author was thinking when they wrote a specific line like "Don't be a ninny" in a paragraph in The Life of Emily Dickenson.
  • My comments often show frustration with the author. They are scrambled along the borders of the pages. They describe my disagreement with speakers like Kierkegaard, or Conor Cruise O'Brien.
  • Students tend to be more simple and direct in their annotations, writing words like metaphor, irony, etc. off to the side of the page.
  • Some people feel more enthusuastic about what they are reading. Their annotations may include words like "Absolutely", or "Bull's-eye" followed with check marks, asterisks, and exclamation points.
  • YEAH!!
  • We have all recorded our questions and thoughts into the margins to show that we have an understanding of the authors words and are not just lazily reading the text.
  • Everyone who has attended college has at least once written the words "Man vs. Nature" in the margin.
  • Even monastery monks that copy manuscripts have jotted down their thoughts alongside Gospels about various observations in and outside the text.
  • They say you haven't read Joshua Reynolds until you have read The Works of Sir Joshua Reynolds with William Blake's furious annotations.
  • My favorite book is Catcher in the Rye in which I obtained from the local library one summer in high school.
  • I felt lonely, reading books in my parents living room. The world seemed so increasingly miserable until I stumbled upon a soft written note on one page saying, "Pardon the egg salad stains, but I'm in love."
