Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: I believe that we are made and not necessarily born . . . [Writing] is a labor. I can remember times where I've, as a student in high school and college, submitted work that I was unsatisfied with . . . I'm guilty of all of the things that I try to help my students with . . . There's an attitude, a persistence, that says, 'Wait a minute, I've got to make sure that this gets out the way I need it to get out' . . . and you learn that kind of determination. That excites me more than anything else in the students, when they come to me and say, 'Mike, even as I submit this, I can tell you where I need to improve it.'
Description: This item includes a segment of an an instructor interview in a Writing Intensive course in Social Work at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2013 and in this clip the interviewee is discussing the evolution of writing persona.
