Active Reading: How to do it and how to assess it

I wrote a post earlier in the school year about active reading on an e-texts, but I think it is worth revisiting.

I made a handy video.  It is much easier to show you, rather than try to explain it in text.

Also, we can't forget that pdfs are a form of e-texts.  In an effort to go paperless, my freshmen have been reading two short stories as downloads in pdf form.  I gave them the option of printing the stories or reading them on their laptops and using the note and annotation functions of the pdf reading programs.  Below are videos of how to actively read on a pdf!
