Brief excerpt from interview: I think this course has made me a stronger writer... In particular, using writing as defending, for instance, this significant place... Using writing to combat and to defend the importance and the significance of this place... in a historical sense all the way to present day... incorporating the different dynamics of all the different types of readings into my paper and also just the whole process of this project... In the end we could put it all together. Although it seems easy to just like take all the papers and put it in one, [but] to make it cohesive and everything you need to do a lot of editing, you need to re-read, peer edit. It was a process. We got into groups of three and we peer-edited... [Candace] had a rubric of what she wanted us to critique and what she wanted us to focus on and make sure our papers had. In the peer editing process we also talked about what they wanna see in my map and what we could do for that as well.
