Du Bois’s The Souls of Black Folk.”[/x_blockquote][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 5px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_feature_box title=”What It Does” title_color=”” text_color=”” graphic=”icon” graphic_size=”60px” graphic_shape=”hexagon” graphic_color=”#ffffff” graphic_bg_color=”#323333″ align_h=”center” align_v=”top” side_graphic_spacing=”20px” max_width=”none” graphic_icon=”sitemap”]This demonstration of the ‘Living Text Annotations Framework”uses the W.E.B De Bois piece ‘The Souls of Black Folks,” as a demonstration of how the tool can be used to enhance students abilities to interact with and engage with the text, guided by a framework of annotations, interactions, and critical engagement responses, directly aligned with the goals of the Common Core Curriculum for this unit. Annotations and interactions could be designed for any specific framework or curriculum.[/x_feature_box][x_accordion][x_accordion_item title=”Expand to see the specific goals of the unit addressed in these annotations” open=”false”]
