Take time to watch this video on how to hi-light essays written in all English classes. Although this video was recorded when we were using APEX, it is still applicable for how to hi-light an essay in Edgenuity or from the Textbook. This is also used for the final project essay. The hi-lighters are located in the double-door cabinet next to the classroom door for handwritten essays.
