How do I know when I am highlighting too much or too little?
Highlighting can be tricky, especially if everything on the page seems important! One trick to avoid under highlighting is to highlight key words, phrases, or definitions to help you quickly find what you are looking for. One way to eliminate over highlighting is to write down questions you have in a notebook and write down the corresponding answer and page where you found your answer so you haven't highlighted the whole page but know where to find your answer when you need it again.

What is Hollywood's Film Noir influenced by?
One main influence is that of French Poetic Realism within the 1930's. This art style contained a lot of shadows, the femme fatale, focusing mainly on the people of the real world, with a major emphasis on reality. While German Expressionism also has the look of film noir (i.e. shadows, dark shots, canted angels) French Poetic Realism more closely connects to the Hollywood Style of Film Noir due to the emphasis on realism, reality, and real people.
When publicly speaking, what tools can I use to capture my audience's attention?
Tools you could utilize would be to start with a story about your subject to gain your audience's attention and further keep them interested by leaving them on a cliffhanger until the end of your speech so they stay engaged, utilizing statistics and/or numbers to capture their eye, or by setting up a call to action surrounding your subject.
