Annotating Textbooks- This article will change my study habits and reading assignments for sure. I have always set aside time to do my reading to where I sit and read through the assigned chapter and now I believe I will skim through from start to finish and annotate captions and conclusions before reading to get the "jist" of what the content is before reading.
What's your annotating style

I really liked this article. It pointed out some obvious realities for me. I'm a very visual learner. I always have been, but I'm also a kinesthetic learner. This article shows you all the different aspects of annotating. I've been struggling a little to remember things for my tests and I realized I have not been annotating the right way at all. This article had a comment that helped me it said, When you annotate, you’re not only reading; you’re already beginning to study the material.This is why annotating is more effective. I just need to put down the highlighter every now and then and write something in the margins.
