How to create a highlight effect

Hi guys! ☺ Trying to learn my way around After Effect and would like to create a box effect for individual words like in the video above. Any help would be appreciated.

If it's just a matter of the highlights, you can use colored rectangular shapes with the opacity animated from 0 to 100 in 2-3 frames to come up at the right moments. Set the Shape layer transfer (blending) mode to Multiply (or Overlay) to get the highlight effect.
Of course you would have to animate the shape layer to move with the text layer.
