  2. First group reads all articles on the computer alone. No restrictions. Individually make questions checking for understanding.
  3. Second group reads articles on computer, no other sites allowed. They discuss each article after reading. In the group, make questions checking for understanding.
  4. Third group gets handouts and reads them. No use of computers. No discussion. Individually make questions checking for understanding.
