UGS 303: What's Green About That? Communicating About the Environment
Description: Students prepared for the research they would be required to do throughout the course by finding, citing, and evaluating scholarly articles related to a guest lecture they would be attending. Students created a short annotated bibliography of three peer-reviewed journal articles using APA format. The assignment was supported by an online course research guide and an in-person library instruction session during the discussion section of the course. Students were able to use the research guide and meet individually with the course librarians for research assignments later in the semester.
Tips and usage ideas:
This assignment is a useful way of integrating the information literacy and University Lecture Series components of the Signature Course.
