Seinfield[edit source]

Not sure if you can use this but it's a youtube of Seinfield episode where George relentlessly pursues an apology from someone who insulted him at a party. If nothing else, some light relief for the final assignment. Jeanette 06:11, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Ideas[edit source]

I feel like there would be a lot of cross cultural information about this topic. Shame, pride, apologies can have quite different repercussions and emotional effects in other non-Western cultures of the world. I think there might be room for a discussion of pride suicide, saving face, seppuku etc. Also maybe you could consider something about when people apologise without actually meaning it. What does this achieve? Does this defence mechanism work long-term or only short-term? Does it just bury the original issue? At what age do children generally understand what it means to say sorry? eg. at what age are they able to show this particular level of empathy? Hope these questions help you! Best of luck!

Children[edit source]

Hi, I work with children at we generally try and encourage the child to apologise for something they do wrong. I was thinking maybe you could look into if this has any affect on the child as an adult i.e. does saying sorry alot as a child impact the amount you apologise/things you apologise for as an adult? Its just an idea.

Also I think you should definitley do a section on why people apologise but don't actually mean it, I think this will be very interesting :-) Best of Luck U3052304 (discusscontribs)

Overall[edit source]

A nicely constructed chapter on an interesting topic. Nice job!

Theory[edit source]

Theory has been well identified. Explanations could be more detailed. Also, try to include some evidence of critical thinking.

Research[edit source]

Some interesting research is included in this chapter, however it would benefit from the author reading more widely. Also, try to incorporate research and theory more fluently.

Written expression[edit source]

The chapter is nicely presented. The discussion around Kevin Rudd's apology was a great inclusion. The structure and flow could be improved. Elements of interaction would also improve the chapter. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)

Overall[edit source]

Overall, this is a good presentation which summarises the chapter well.

Structure and content[edit source]

Key concepts are included in this presetation, with an appropriate exploration of theory and research. The flow is clear and logical.

Communication[edit source]

Ideas are communicated clearly via dialogue and images. The use of Prezi makes the presentation more engaging, so well done here. Practical application is nicely embedded throughout.

Production quality[edit source]

Picture quality is good, and Prezi has been used well here. Sound quality is quite 'fuzzy', and could be improved. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)
