Highlighting Tool

Highlighting/Notes

There is an amazing online feature that you may not yet be aware of. Students can highlight sections of articles and take notes on those sections. You, as a teacher, may view what the students in your classes have done. This can be done together as a class or assigned as a work alone activity after some instructions. We are sure you will find many ways to use this in your classroom.
