Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: As a student, I think that success is defined by how much you learn and not really what you see. I think a lot of times, especially at this school, we're in lecture classes... where you take the exam and that's your grade and that's it. But classes like this where it's like a practicum class you can see what you've done and it's not so much, I dunno, academic, but it's just tangible. I think John measures success by what is being done. He's a really big activist for the sustainability of UH in general... He encourages students to take on projects around campus and really look at what we can improve.
Description: This item includes a segment of a student interview in a Writing Intensive course in a sophomore honors seminar at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2014, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'What elements of your writing performances would you identify as strong or successful, and why? What defines success for you? What do you think determines success for this instructor?'
