We asked teachers to share the hardest part of teaching good highlighting and annotation skills. They said:
- “Teaching kids that highlighting is not painting the barn.” —Patricia B.
- “Getting students to understand the different aspects of text worthy of notation—main idea, significant detail, theme, etc.” —Melissa W.
- “Convincing them it’s necessary.” —Amy S.
With these comments in mind, we’ve created a brand-new classroom poster to help you teach kids smart highlighting skills. Plus, don’t forget to save and pin the exclusive educator infographic, which has more ideas for teaching annotation in the classroom.
