Online Highlighters

I've been investigating online highlighters for the purpose of teaching summarization stategies. Though Diigo and iLighter are more sophisticated, I'm leaning towards Awesome Highlighter which can be used without a plug-in download and is straightforward and user-friendly in operation.

Try Awesome Highlighter out here.

Indeed . . . waking up needs to be high on the list, but not only waking up, but waking up with enthusiasm for a new day and the ability to forgive. So much wisdom from these small amphibians.
