Citation: Habel, Shellie. 'Student interview for Place-Based WAC/WID writing instruction in Geology & Geophysics, clip 4 of 17.' Interview with Jim Henry. Scholarspace. Sep. 2015. Web.
Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: [The instructor] is a tough grader. He grades like a boss. He gives you an assignment, and it's almost like he's a boss saying, 'Here's what I want you do. Go do it.' He doesn't tell you to put a scale, make it pretty. He just expects you to do it, and if you don't, he'll mark you off... But a boss wouldn't tell you every single thing either... The great thing about Scott is you can turn in something terrible and he'll give you something all marked up, and he'll take points off, and he'll write funny snide comments... and you learn to see that in your work and almost question the things that you're doing, without him even saying it, so when we get jobs, we won't have to turn in something cruddy to our bosses.
Description: This item includes a segment of a student interview in a Writing Intensive course in Geology & Geophysics at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2014, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'Did the assignments motivate you or, on the contrary, de-motivate you in performing in the course. Why?'
