I learned to annotate text in church
Nowadays, for the most part, we must teach students how to annotate text.
I puzzled over where I “learned.” And then it hit me. Church.
Years ago as a new believer, I would take notes. I wrote in my notebook and Bible, underlining and making notes in the margin–annotating.
I never used the fancy word for my Sunday note-taking. Never really thought about it. I just did it. I couldn’t help myself. I was hungry for the knowledge being imparted.
Why aren’t more of our students knowledge-hungry enough to annotate without being taught explicitly?
Just a thought.
