This project won third place in the 2017 Signature Course Information Literacy Award. The award recognizes exemplary student work that achieves the learning outcomes of the Signature Course information literacy requirement, that students will be able to create and execute a research strategy, critically evaluate information, and use citations. This paper was nominated by Dr Camille Weinberg and was submitted in her Fall 2016 Signature Course “Prehistory of Food.” This project was chosen because Conrad chose strong sources and did an excellent job synthesizing them into his argument about biofuel use. As Dr. Weinburg said “[Conrad] put substantial time into his research process, as he sought out a variety of appropriate types of sources ranging from books to dissertations to journal articles…this attention to detail and exhaustive effort during the research process is reflected in the way in which Conrad utilizes the sources within his essay…[he] is particularly skilled at integrating each source in a way that is natural and cohesive with his own writing.”
