About this article

Professor Andrea Wood is using Hypothes.is to provide a common space to discuss and define key concepts on articles the class is reading together. This tool allows you to both highlight content and annotate (i.e. comment on the article) both privately and publicly to anyone who has the URL to this article. In our class time we will work on installing the tool and then use it to comment on The dead and the quick article.
