Warm-up: Quickwrite on the quote: "Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure.” - Norman Vincent Peale
Working again with our text, we read through with the intention of chunking the text into logical sections. For example, after the introduction draw a line across the page. Then continue drawing lines across the page to "chunk" the text into logical parts. Consider the content of each paragraph and any transition words you may see.
After chunking, use the left hand margin to summarize the content of each section. This is what the author "says". Then, in the right-hand margin, describe what the author is doing in each section. This is what the author "does". An example "does" statement would look like this: "introduces new information to support the previous argument". A does statement will always start with a verb.
Finish chunking and the "says" and "does" annotations.
