Rhetoric & Composition II Rotating Header Image

We can keep some of our Hypotheses annotation & notetaking notes here for now …

“I’ll make this short: The thing you’re doing now, reading prose on a screen, is going out of fashion.”

Initial & Informal notes


  • free
  • easy to use
  • can reply to others’ annotations
  • can insert images and links
  • can view annotations as a list, out of visual context, or in context
  • can see what classmates thought about the reading; different perspectives


  • not easy to find one’s own previous annotations (check under profile?)
  • required to use Chrome


  • can annotating like this cause you to slow down, because you know that you’ll need to contribute a thoughtful, mindful, generative, additive annotation?
  • can we use these “social annotations” as in-class prompts next week? What difference can they make?


  • What’s the difference between an annotation and a note?
