    Annotating has been one of the best note taking practices that I have used. Most times you will scroll back through the chapter to find the answer or key phrase in the text, annotating pulls that info out of the text and puts it right there.

    Annotating has also worked very well for me.Writing down the key points, saying them aloud and putting key small definitions about the main points to describe them better and stick them to my memory. I also like to relate what I learned to things I already know so it stays better in my memory.

    I agreed with many of your points made throughout the video, one being we should be open minded and everything can be multi-dimensional. I agree on reading everything thoroughly in order to grasp what the writer is stating and their point they are trying to get across. I find it helpful to also take notes, highlighting, or annotating on the side key points and ideas that I find connections with.

    I agree with your video and what you got across to us. As much as we say to read throughly, and we don’t. I definitely agree that everything should be read throughly in order to get a full understanding of the topic fully. Taking notes, highlighting words you don’t know to look up, circling keywords with also help with fully understanding the topic.

    I like how they went into details of more engaging claims. Instead of just stating claims which are very broad and well known, I thought that it was very interesting as they went into details of other claims that are more detailed and district that can actually further the knowledge of the topic.
