Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: One thing good about American education, and I see it because I am a foreigner, is that we literally empower professors to teach the way they want, what they want, when they want, how they want, so that is our strength . . . honestly, that syllabus I create, I never used a textbook . . . so from day one in '95 when I started doing it, I never used a textbook . . . and so some people said 'that sounds like a graduate course,' but why should we treat undergraduates like anything less/ . . .The British college education system doesn't allow the professor any flexibility: this is the course, you have to cover it . . . Our students write in 'you' from, all of them . . . I think we need an article in [student newspaper] Kā Leo, ʻStop writing in 'you' form,ʻ either write in ʻIʻ or ʻweʻ because ʻyouʻ is for instruction . . . you should use ʻIʻ or ʻwe,ʻ that personalizes.
