Tips on Marking & Underlining Texts

  • Read a section first, then mark and underline it selectively
  • Circle and/or box special vocabulary and transitions
  • Number important or sequential ideas in the margins
  • Underline information as if you were plagiarizing brief notes from which you could study
  • Underline all definitions of terminology
  • Mark/label examples that represent main ideas
  • Jot down paraphrases, questions, and summaries in available space within the text
