Writing Assignment Used for This Interview


For these assignments, you will be asked to read or view the assigned course materials (organized by week in the resources folder in Laulima) and write an essay up to one page long. Doing this will help you remember the key points covered in the readings, and will help me to assess your understanding of the materials.

Additionally, I will distribute discussion questions one week before each journal is due (4 journals total). You will be asked to answer the discussion questions in a 2-3 page essay. Please include your discussion essay at the beginning of each of your 4 submitted journals.

I will grade your weekly reading journal entries as well as your answers to the discussion questions using two criteria: 1) how well you captured the essential points of the course materials; and 2) how clearly you expressed yourself.

Be very sure that all direct quotations are properly indicated, using any standard system of bibliographic citations. Below is the essay format for your weekly reading journal entries

    Brief excerpt from interview: Mauna Kea is considered a sacred site for Native Hawaiians and they want to build a telescope there... It's supposed to be one of the best telescopes, and Mauna Kea is a really great place to have a telescope due to its location and little light pollution. But, it's considered a sacred space for Hawaiian people so that's kind of the conflict.

    Brief excerpt from interview: To really understand [a text] you have to be able to pick apart certain things in critiquing... I think both of them are like pretty linked, because in order to critique you have to really understand it, and therefore leads to good understanding.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I'm interested in the relationship between language, culture, and the environment because I think they're very intrinsically linked... There are a lot of endangered languages... If you lose a language, you lose a really unique perspective of the world you live in, so I think it's really important to preserve those languages within a globalized world. A lot of languages are projected to disappear. I think that would be a real tragedy, so I think hopefully in the future I can do something with that.

    Brief excerpt from interview: Hawaiʻi is a really unique place and we have an abundance of natural resources but we also have a lot of problems that come with that especially like biodiversity problems... For Hawaiian people but also for many indigenous people concepts of land ownership is really different than people who came (missionaries, colonizers) and I think in many ways the unfamiliarity with this kind of new system just changed a lot of culture and I think in many ways was used to disenfranchise indigenous people but I think yeah like you can see how it relates to Hawaiʻi because just notions of land ownership is very different than you know plots of land and you can't trespass on this front. I mean now that's like how we think of it a lot of the time, but I think it's also important that as people living here we know a different viewpoint because then you know when conflicts do come up it's kind of like you can see where they're coming from instead of just being like what are they doing trespassing on my private property.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I don't know if I learned more in terms of content knowledge, but the tools with which we were learning how people relate to the environment you can use to better understand Hawaiʻi. I would say for example right now Mauna Kea that's a big thing right now and I think you can really use the tools of what we're learning in class in how people relate to the environment it's very different for Hawaiians than it is for you know some other people so that's why there is a conflict of interest.
