    ^Annotations

    Teachers and students can highlight and annotate articles. Your teacher may leave annotations on the article with questions or instructions for you, or they may ask you to make your own annotations. Teachers and students can see and respond to each other's annotations.

    1. Highlight text. An annotations box will appear.
    2. In the annotations box, select a color and enter your annotation.
