Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: I think the final project was successful because of my organization, not because of my writing finesse . . . Taking our scientific journal articles and reading through them, pages and pages, and highlighting what the main points were, and adding a little opinion into it--I thought that was pretty successful . . . The response I gave to you was the only one I got a 9.5 on . . . he would let us do rewrites . . . This one was further along in the semester, and maybe my writing got clearer . . . For me, the definition of success in writing is the balance of clearly communicating the point of the paper, with adding some opinion . . . For Professor Turano, success is improvement, because you become a stronger writer, and showing that you learned and grasped the information.
