This project won first 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 self-nominated for the award by Naoko Ward and Larisa Liberty, with support from Dr. Laura Gonzalez. It was submitted in her Fall 2016 Signature Course, “UGS 303 Scientific Inquiry: Innovation.” This project was chosen because of Naoko and Larissa’s skilled use of outside sources to inform a laboratory experiment. Their literature review cited credible sources which they synthesized beautifully. As Dr. Gonzalez said, “I was amazed about their grasp of the topic and how well they used the literature to support their background information, methods and discussion.”
