Color-Code Your Notes

Using different-colored pens can help you remember things and make assignments fun.

I love using different-colored pens for taking notes in class. Not only does it make note-taking fun, it also helps me remember things. For example, in chemistry, I color-code formulas to help me memorize them. Color-coding things in my assignment book also helps. This has helped me get through high school (I’m a junior), so I thought that it could help other teens like me!
