Overall this is a Pass-level chapter. The chapter provides evidence of a basic understanding of emotion in general and for adolescents in particular. The treatment of theory and research was sufficient, but not in-depth. Minimal usage was made of the wiki format (feature boxes and reflection questions were included) but uploaded images had to be deleted due to not being free to use.
Sufficient but limited use of peer-reviewed research on emotion in adolescence was evident.
Many aspects of emotion in adolescence are not considered e.g., does mood fluctuate more in adolescence? Are there gender differences in adolescent emotion? How do adolescents cope with their emotions? What are the predictors of emotional adaptation? What about depression and anxiety (these are the big two emotions).
The textbook chapter was presented in a straightforward manner, with a clearly structure and was reasonably well written.
There could be some potential problem of authenticity of academic work here because the chapter has been only edited by Haddo which is not the user account of the person who signed up for the chapter (Stephmartin. Make sure to edit under your own account.
The Introduction does not clearly explain what will be covered in the chapter.
The chapter could have benefited from a more developed introduction, with clear focus questions. Getting comments on a chapter plan and/or chapter draft could have helped particular with this aspect.
There was a copyright licensing problem with File:Parrot emotion.jpg (it has now been deleted) and also with the Phoebe Prince image. The emotion table appeared to be a partial screenshot of copyrighted material from another website without acknowledgement or permission. The Phoebe Prince photograph also did not acknowledge the source or copyright owner. Please note that this is borderline plagiarism.
