    Student interview for Place-Based WAC/WID writing instruction in Management, clip 13 of 13

    Brief excerpt from interview: I think it's more so if the topic of the research is interesting: for my English 100 the research paper was kind of on an object that represents a theme, and so mines was on 'the dollar bill represents power,' and so that interested me, so that research paper wasn't that bad because I got to research stuff I actually wanted to write about, but if there's another class that we're given a prompt that I just don't have any interest in, then I really don't give my 100 percent in the paper; I'll write just to get the page limit down . . . if I get it back for a second draft to turn in, I just correct whatever is written and turn it back in.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I think the more effective "w" [Writing Intensive] courses here at UH have been the ones that the writing was more spread out, and the page length wasn't so important . . . I think the classes where we wrote . . . three pages here, two pages there, helped more because I got to just write, we got to edit it and turn it in again . . . so I got more out of the . . . opinion papers rather than the research.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I think the writing will stay with me when I go abroad, and then I see some differences, and then just to review . . . especially the 'celebrations of learning' since we did six or seven of them, they are more of snippets of the course . . . so then it's easy to review almost what we learned through the whole course just by reading what we wrote.

    Brief excerpt from interview: If things don't work out there [Japan] with my career plans, then I still want to be in that industry, and the only place in America for that industry is on the mainland . . . I would have to work for one of the big translation companies, so for my specific career goals I don't see myself staying in Hawaiʻi . . . One of the reasons why too I wanted to take this course: to prepare myself for what is to come in the business world.

    Brief excerpt from interview: After I graduate I plan to do the JET program and teach English in Japan. While I'm there we have up to five years; we can re-up the contract, and so while I'm there I just want to establish business connections . . . hopefully get into either the Japanese comic industry, or into the consulting industry . . . since I kind of grew up on Japanese comics and Japanese Anime and it always kind of influenced my life . . . I realized I think that what i bring I really want to change someone else's life.
