Assignment Objective

To show students how they can navigate and conceptualize literary readings using tags that correspond with major keywords in literary studies.

Assignment Overview

Tags are a great way to organize your thoughts, track patterns, and trace themes and concepts while reading. After reading, you can then search your annotations on the text by using tags on the annotation filter. Alternatively, you can go to the Sewing Kit and limit annotations by tags, which allows you to see what tags have been used across different texts and media.

In this assignment, you will focus on tagging literary devices and using major literary concepts.
