Create a highlighter or color-coded underlining system for note-taking.
When each color has a specific purpose, your child can scan a page and know where to look for what she needs. For example, she can mark all new terms or vocabulary words in yellow, the main topic in green and each subtopic in pink. This works whether she’s studying textbooks, handwritten notes or printed-out notes. (This approach tends to work best for shorter assignments. It could be visually overwhelming to do this throughout big chunks of text.) Most word-processing software has highlighter functions, so she can use this technique on the computer, too.
