Sandra,

Annotating a digital document allows you to do a "close reading" of the article, in order to get a better understanding of the author's meaning. Highlighting keywords and phrases and making notes, will help in analyzing the reading. To do this it is best to have the document in Microsoft Word format. The Word Ribbon (tool bar) has a Review tab that contains the "new comment" command  and the "show markup" command. These will allow you to markup the document, and make notes for yourself. In addition you can use the Font commands from the Home tab to highlight, bold and underline text.

Another option is if you use Google Drive you can create a Google Doc. The Google Doc toolbar has commands for annotating the document.

I hope this helps answer your question.
