Correct. Reading involves more than just highlighting phrases in your text. You must ensure that your reading results in comprehension: a substantive understanding of the concepts and facts being presented. To accomplish this, you must use active reading techniques where you create questions, find answers to your questions, make connections between what you have read in your text and what is in your lecture, and create examples other than what your text provides to explain concepts and terms.
