Anticipated Problems 

         I teach 8 weeks of a 15 week semester course, Principles of Biology.  Can I accomplish my objectives in that time.   

         Can I find enough articles that first year students understand?   

         Will I be able to embed this strategy seamlessly in the curriculum so that it contributes to existing course objectives?
