Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: This assignment, and actually all the other writing assignments we received, motivated me to do more. I think in part my relation to the subject as an indigenous person motivated me to want to really express my own views about this topic. It's one thing to always be analyzed from a third-party perspective, and it's another to in essence give your own explanation.... I can see how it would be a demotivating assignment for some individuals. We read a lot of controversial texts by various activists, and as a non-indigenous person, reading some of those can be very disheartening.
Description: This item includes a segment of a student interview in a Writing Intensive course in American Studies at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2013, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'Did the assignments motivate you or, on the contrary, de-motivate you in performing in the course. Why?'
