*Do not highlight the whole paragraph – highlight the important idea,
concept, or word (vocabulary)
*If you highlight something, you MUST annotate it
*Annotate with a connection (to self, to other texts, to the world),
question, observation, argument, agreement, etc.
*Number your highlighted section and the annotation so they are easy to
put together
Yellow – I strongly connect/understand this idea/concept
(so strongly that I could teach it to someone else)
Pink – I have a connection to this idea/concept
(not a really strong connection; I couldn’t teach
someone else)
Blue – I don’t have a connection/understanding of this
idea/concept/word (ask a question, try to clarify,
mark your confusion)
