Example of a double-entry journal for annotating your notes:

How to create a double-entry journal in Word:

1.  Open a new Word document.
2.  Hover over the “tables” button in the toolbar.
3.  Select two columns wide and then choose how many rows you want to include.  You can always add more as you go.

This is a nice way to create a double-entry journal, because the boxes will expand as you type.

Remember that “annotate” means “to comment,” so you will record your own thoughts/reactions to a selection from the text.  In the text section of your notes, include the page number and/or paragraph number in parenthesis at the end of the quote for easy access (54). <——- like this
