Background

These readings are grouped around three themes: education (purpose/cost), health/environment, and drugs/freedom of speech.  

In this example, a class of 18 students was divided into six groups (3 students per group).  Each student was responsible for reading and sharing the content of two assigned articles with their group members.

Thanks to Heather Devrick for providing these sample readings.
