    Student interview for Place-Based WAC/WID writing instruction in Geology & Geophysics, clip 15 of 15
    ( 2015) Place-based WAC/WID Hui ; Aiu, Bryson ; Henry, Jim
    Brief excerpt from interview: The instructor will write more than you. You get it back and are blown away with what did I do wrong? It's not because he's overly critical or wants to crush your dreams. [It's more about] this is what I've seen in the scientific world and you have to step it up to match it... In hindsight, you are appreciative of that. That was pretty mean, that was pretty harsh, but I get it.

    Brief excerpt from interview: [For] most of the Writing Intensives, the main assignment was always to produce, for us, something what would be publishable: a scientific paper... that was challenging, the hardest paper I ever wrote because I've never done that type of thing before... It was a crash course in scientific writing.

    Brief excerpt from interview: I do know of people who, have [the syllabus] right here and have it while they're working. For me, that's excessive. I get what they're doing; they're trying to nip it in the bud. [My revisions] always came after the fact.

    Brief excerpt from interview: You hear about the legends of Pele on the Big Island and how people correlate it with how actual geological events happened: Maybe this legend here talks about this eruption, and there's hearsay evidence that points it out... it's still debatable. I know the story and I know about that eruption. I never bothered to connect them, and somebody else did.

    Brief excerpt from interview: This course, and other Writing Intensive courses, as far as forcing me to write and forcing me to look at why I wrote, will always be crucial to me... the Writing Intensive, and reading other people's work, it forces me to look at myself: why did I say this? Will someone else get it?
