Taking Notes Module

Highlighting Method

With this method you will highlight the text directly and then make notes from what you’ve highlighted. Begin by reading a paragraph and then highlighting the main point or idea. Continue this as you move through each paragraph and section until you have completed the chapter or section that you are required to read. Once finished, you will want to make notes from the sentences and/or sections that you’ve highlighted. Remember to write down section headings and again, try to use your own words rather than copying word for word.
