Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: Normally when I teach Writing Intensive they're all Hawaiʻi literature based, so they're all place-based. In 320 [which is not a Writing Intensive or place-based course], [the students] get involved with the literature. They're all English majors. They love literature. They engage in the topics... But it's not necessarily on a personal kind of level. It's on a very intellectual kind of level, and I think that what's nice about these kinds of place-based projects is that they're both intellectual and they're kind of spiritual in some kind of way. Or there's a personal connection for them that enables them to ask questions and to answer questions that they've had for a long time about where they live.
Description:This item includes a segment of an instructor interview in a Writing Intensive course in Upper Divison English at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2014, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'If relevant, can you compare student writing performances with WI courses you have taught that are NOT place-based/inflected?'
