text annotation chart complete

  • Reword - replace words and phrases with synonyms whenever you can.

  • Rearrange - rearrange words within sentences to make new sentences. You can even rearrange the ideas presented within the paragraph.

  • Recheck - make sure that your paraphrase conveys the same meaning as the original text.

  • Realize – that some words and phrases cannot be changed – names, dates, titles etc. cannot be replaced, but you can present them differently in your paraphrase.

 

Louie The Survivor and Jane the Gamer

Jane McGonigal Quotes

~ “A game is an opportunity to focus our energy, with relentless optimism, at something we’re good at (or getting better at) and enjoy. In other words, gameplay is the direct emotional opposite of depression.”

~ “No object, no event, no outcome or life circumstance can deliver real happiness to us. We have to make our own happiness—by working hard at activities that provide their own reward.

~ “All games share four defining traits: a goal, rules, a feedback system, and voluntary participation.”

~ “People don’t have a propensity for laziness.  People have a propensity for hard work. It just needs to be work that matters to them.”

~ “Awakening is an epic win.”

~ “Willpower works like a muscle. It gets stronger the more you exercise it.”

~ “Scientists have demonstrated that dramatic positive changes can occur in our lives as a direct result of facing an extreme challenge. Researchers call this post-traumatic growth.”

Louie Quotes:

~ “Life is about experiencing all.”

~ “If I can take it, I can make it.”

~ “I’d made it this far and refused to give up because all my life I had always finished the race.”

~ “To persevere is important to everybody. Don’t give up, don’t give in. There is always an answer to everything.”

~ “That’s one thing you learn in sports. You don’t give up; You fight to the finish.”

~ “Unbroken’ was published as a help to society.”

~ “All I want to tell young people is that you’re not going to be anything in life unless you learn to commit to a goal. You have to reach deep within yourself to see if you’re willing to make the sacrifices.”
