The following online materials illustrate how the series of tasks discussed in the paper can be implemented on the WWW. The materials work best when using Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 5 or later) on a Windows machine. However, they have been tested on Netscape (version 6 or later) and Internet Explorer (version 5 or later) on computers running Windows 98 and later or Mac OS 9 and later. The only plugin required for the materials is the quicktime plugin, which interprets the audio files.

The links provided below will open up a new browser window. The window dimensions are set to 751 x 550 pixels, which means that the minimum resolution recommended to properly view the materials is 800 x 600 pixels.

Readers have the option of going through the entire set of materials in a linear fashion (starting with part 1) or to view the individual parts (parts 2 and 3).

Part 1: Improving Public Involvement in American Foreign Policy - A reading passage with comprehension questions (links within help users navigate through the entire task)

Part 2: A Potential Model for Improved Public Involvement - A listening exercise with comprehension questions

Part 3:

Group 1: Read the Canadian text

Group 2: Read the U.S. text.
