This week, we’re annotating this copy of the article together. It’s a great way to connect with other Article Clubbers and share your first thoughts about the piece, right inside the text. You can add to others’ comments or add your own.

Try it, you’ll like it!

I like annotating because it gets me deeper into the article so I understand it better. But my favorite part is seeing what you all write. In case you’re nervous about annotating: Remember, at Article Club, we don’t have to be fancy or smart. (We’re already fancy and smart!)

Coming up this month
  • This week: We’ll annotate the article with fellow Article Clubbers.

  • Next week: We’ll listen to Mr. Fleurizard’s thoughts about the article.

  • Sunday, September 26: We’ll discuss the article with fellow Article Clubbers.
