No other tool will help the Internet reader as much
  as the right question, asked at the right time and in
  the right way. Intelligent readers of the Internet
  begin by asking questions even before they log on,
  and they continue to ask questions during their
  search. By asking questions repeatedly and
  deliberately, students become thoughtful readers,
  developing "habits of mind" that they can then
  generalize to other situations or tasks
