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.
Description: This item includes a segment of an instructor interview in a Writing Intensive course in Tropical Plant and Soil Sciences at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2013, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'Why do you think it is important that students in your classes engage with our place(s) through writing?'
