|Abstract:||Brief excerpt from interview: When it relates back to their own lives and their own living situations, it does have a larger impact, because it's more tangible, more real for them, so they can write with even more passion. They have a buy-in, they have a stake in the game, an excitement about the topic, a willingness to go above and beyond what I assign them, a lot deeper research—these are one-week turnaround time, and the requirement is one page. I often get two to four pages, sometimes five, so these students are obviously excited and passionate about the topic.|
