What a lovely looking page!! TomMarvoloRiddle (discusscontribs)

Such a good concept![edit source]

Hey, as someone who lives on a pretty big property and has more animals than I could possibly count, I think the idea of pet ownership and emotion is wonderful! I know it is a silly TV show, but this clip stands out in my mind and I think there would have to be some basis behind it!

You're page is great, I was able to find some interesting information in this article and thought it might be relevant. McConnell, A. R., Brown, C. M., Shoda, T. M., Stayton, L. E., & Martin, C. E.

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a useful, solid chapter. It has some excellent coverage of theory and research. Some of the written expression could be improved. Note that approximately a quarter of the chapter focuses very generically on what an emotion is - this could be summarised with a link to other pages for more detail e.g., emotion.

Theory[edit source]

  1. Several interesting and useful types of theory are considered, including some not covered in other chapters e.g., role theory

Research[edit source]

  1. Research comments...

Written expression[edit source]

  1. Written expression comments...
  2. Check APA style for citations - should be in alphabetical in brackets
  3. Avoid one sentence paragraphs; 3 to 5 sentences is suggested

  1. The chapter would benefit from demonstrating how it uniquely builds upon other related Motivation and Emotion book chapters (see the See also section)
