A shared article makes great reading…and writing: Lost in a sea of yellow

I’d like to share a great article with you. Although it is about reading, we know that it also has to do with writing….it is impossible to disassociate the four language skills. So, the question that is addressed here is an article by Maryellen Weimer, PhD. This article is shared from: http://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/teaching-professor-blog/lost-is-a-sea-of-yellow-teaching-students-a-better-way-to-highlight/

“A lot of students are in love with their highlighters, especially those bright, fluorescent-colored ones. They use them to highlight course materials, sometimes underlining whole pages of text….”

With this great beginning, this article will point out a little-considered point for teachers of EFL and ESP in writing and reading contexts.
