Common practice to underline or "box" quantifiers?

Postby jmart154 » Wed Aug 08, 2012 10:52 am

I have recently been practicing underlining or "boxing" quantifiers (words like "most", "some", "all", etc.) in the Logical Reasoning stimuli, especially in Must Be True and other inference-based questions. Is this a standard technique? I find it helps eliminate the visual disconnect after reading the passage, and saves time. It's easy to get tripped up by misinterpreting one of these quantifiers in an answer choice, so I am wondering what people's thoughts are on this. Anyone else think it's advantageous to do so?

I tell my students to do this if they regularly skip over those words (which most of them do). So I definitely support this.
