    ( 2015) Place-based WAC/WID Hui ; Mahelona, Mary ; Henry, Jim ; Bost, Dawne
    Brief excerpt from interview: Not really. Other than the Native Hawaiian, which is the core throughout, all of the different culture--we always have them compare to the Native Hawaiian culture. Other than the Native Hawaiian, there's no assigned culture for them to focus on. They select whatever is of interest to them for their other writing assignments to compare to the Native Hawaiian.

    Instructor interview for Place-Based WAC/WID writing instruction in Nursing, clip 11 of 12
    ( 2015) Place-based WAC/WID Hui ; Mahelona, Mary ; Henry, Jim ; Bost, Dawne
    Brief excerpt from interview: [By the end of the semester, students should have] a greater understanding and tolerance of cultural differences that can be applicable anywhere . . . [Students should be] willing to consider other cultural paradigms versus the traditional Western one ... and [they should] see that other ways of thinking about things is okay,... not necessarily wrong and not necessarily inferior . . . Some of these ancient cultures have been around for centuries, so whatever their beliefs and their practices are must have some kind of merit because they have survived . . . They're not extinct, so they didn't all die off. So something was right. So not to push aside some of those practices and beliefs so quickly, but to have a little bit more of an open mind, if nothing else even about a specific culture just hopefully a greater receptiveness and tolerance to different viewpoints that might work for somebody.

    ( 2015) Place-based WAC/WID Hui ; Mahelona, Mary ; Henry, Jim ; Bost, Dawne
    Brief excerpt from interview: "Not really. What I'm looking for and I'm going to grade them on is did they meet did they address the criteria not so much what they say about it but did the adequately address it. The creative aspects of it or personal aspects of it . . . is more the interesting part and as long as they meet the technical aspects of the paper that how I grade versus what they're saying or their personal opinion . . . ."

    ( 2015) Place-based WAC/WID Hui ; Mahelona, Mary ; Henry, Jim ; Bost, Dawne
    Brief excerpt from interview: [Most of them are . . . local-based students. Occasionally there might be a few that maybe have recently moved to the islands from the Mainland. Being a nursing course we have a . . . much greater percentage of female but we do have . . . a handful of male. ..." "[Many students are] married, they have children and . . . the majority of them . . . would be in their thirties with maybe an occasional younger student or a little older student that might be in their late thirties." "There is a good amount of those students that have degrees and careers in other fields and then have decided to go pursue their nursing."
