Using Underlining

Question

What Are Some Strategies to Best Use Underlining?

Answer

We have two strategies within our Classroom Strategy section that help students organize information while they’re reading. One is called Selective Highlighting and the other is called Power Notes. Both these strategies are fully described and have examples, too. Both strategies seek to have students organize the important information within a text, and can be used across content areas.
