    Even though it's a history book, i figure annotation fits under the english forum more than anything...

    the book is "Renaissance Lives: Portraits of an Age" and is essentially 15 short biographies of notable individuals from the time. After i've finished reading the text there's a broad essay topic so i'm annotating to enhance my understanding/memory/prepare me for the essay.

    soooo the question: how do you all (if you ever annotate, i usually don't so i get that) annotate non fiction so that the facts stick in your head and such?


    side note: the essay topic is essentially 'pick 4 individuals that you consider most representative of the renaissance. why'd you pick them, etc." since it's so broad idk how to look for that in the text really without highlighting every other sentence. thanks all. help = awesome.

    Quite simple really - using different coloured highlighters helps people 'suck up' information. Use say 4 highlighter colours for the 4 different people.. or maybe 1 highter for each theme then you can easily compare at the end.
