Our school is one-to-one, which is wonderful, especially during a pandemic when sharing materials was no longer an option. However, when it came to close reading and/or annotating a text, digital versions of texts proved difficult for the students to easily manipulate and/or maneuver through in a timely manner. Often, the students would get lost in the pages, unable to locate specific quotes or passages when they needed them, and I could both see and understand their frustration. My project will allow every student to have their own individual copy of one of the texts we will be using for the year. They will be able to take notes in it, highlight passages, add sticky notes with questions or additional comments. They will have the ability to use actual bookmarks to keep their place, and they will even be able to take the book home if they need to catch up with the class reading. More importantly, they will never need to scroll up or down to find a quotation or a passage; they will only have to turn the page. Of course, this means the books will not be able to be used next year, and that's okay. This project also allows each student to take their text, the text they lovingly annotated for an entire unit of study, home with them. It is my hope that this text will serve as a reminder to each of my students of their ability to close read and annotate a text, and hopefully, the text will offer some fond memories from their time in my classroom as well.
