Hey! I just made some direct edits to your chapter, I only corrected some in-text references :) Good luck! Pheonix (discusscontribs) 13:36, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks Pheonix! I appreciate that! DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 10:05, 4 November 2013 (UTC)


Hey Doris! I was just reading your chapter- which is amazing by the way, I was looking at your pictures, perhaps some of them could use captions? Just a though. Good luck! Pheonix (discusscontribs) 00:57, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks Pheonix! I'll do that now DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 03:05, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

Other theories?[edit]

Hey Doris, I noticed that you added crime and weather to your page, which I think is really intriguing. However I was wondering if there were any other theories that relate to weather, perhaps something that looks at the exams or school and weather? Pheonix (discusscontribs) 02:05, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey Pheonix, I've tried searching for theories about weather, but so far, I've found little to none. Thanks for the suggestion though. I think I'll also be including something about school and education in the 'how weather affects emotions' sections. DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 06:08, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Seasonal Affective Disorder[edit]

Seasonal Affective Disorder is covered in Nature and Happiness in less detail and with reference to natural light treatments available Noodles&Wedges 03:48, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Hello, I was just wondering if Seasonal Affective Disorder is the only disorder that is a reflection of Weather and Emotion? Thanks! Pheonix (discusscontribs) 03:08, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey Pheonix, thanks for that suggestion. I can't seem to find anything else that is strongly correlated with weather that contributes to disorders. There are however lots of physiological effects, and the weather changing behaviour etc. But I'll keep a look out if there is anything DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 01:21, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello :) I found this article which talks about the effect of weather on mood as well as the issue of individual differences. Here is a link to it: I hope it goes well for you! EmmaP (discusscontribs) 21:56, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

Thanks EmmaP! Unfortunately though the page isn't opening for me :( do you think you could you give me the name of the article? Thanks! DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 13:23, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Sorry Dorris!! It's called "Come rain or come shine: Individual differences in how weather affects mood." and I found it on PsychARTICLES I hope you can find it.. let me know if you need any more information! EmmaP (discusscontribs) 3:27, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you EmmaP! :) DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 10:29, 28 October 2013 (UTC)


Hi Doris, your chapter looks like it is progressing well. I was wondering whether or not you had already had a look into the role that weather plays on productivity? Say are people more or less productive in the warmer or cooler months. This then got me thinking about the role that weather played on well-being - specifically if living in an area that wasn't subject to the extremes of summer and winter? Hope this gives you some last minute things to talk about!! TomMarvoloRiddle (discusscontribs) 04:08, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey TomMarvoloRiddle, thanks for that suggestion, I'll definitely look into productivity. As for where people live having an impact, I'll definitely include that in 'how weather benefits well-being' DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 04:48, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey Doris, I'm glad that that suggestion has helped you out a little bit. Also, as James has often said "be bold" I have changed your 'Crime and weather' heading to the format that he has posted regarding upper and lower cases in Wikiversity! Good luck with it all!!! TomMarvoloRiddle (discusscontribs) 05:36, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi Doris, I just noticed that in your opening quote you have a missing parentheses, I went ahead and changed it for you! it went from (The Use of Life, Chapter IV: "Recreation" (1894) to: (The Use of Life, Chapter IV: "Recreation", 1894). Hope this is actually what you wanted!! :) TomMarvoloRiddle (discusscontribs) 03:11, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Good eye TMR I appreciate it! DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 07:25, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for feedback, will try and return the favour![edit]

Hello, Thanks for the feedback on my topic of joy, I will definitely implement photos and your method of referencing, thanks for the tip ;) Upon reading your well-written piece, my only advice would be to just remember to include a summary, as per the guidelines... as for everything else, its fantastic visually and knowledgeably.

Ah yes, you're absolutely right. I had a conclusion paragraph before but found that I was just repeating myself and it didn't sound good so I got rid of it thinking It wasn't necessary to have one. I'm glad you said this otherwise I would've overlooked this and lost marks! Thank you! DorisWeasley (discusscontribs) 07:44, 3 November 2013 (UTC)


Doris! Thomas here! Thank you for the wonderful work you have put into editing my page. I see now that my time spent at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry did not teach me how to spell check, but boy do I know a few killer spells!! Your final product looks really good!! I did particularly like your pie story! Very good work! TomMarvoloRiddle (discusscontribs) 23:36, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

This is an interesting chapter - well done!

Some really interesting research is presented in this chapter. Appropriate level of detail is provided for the target audience. To improve further, include some evidence of critical evaluation.

Written expression[edit]

The chapter is well presented and structured. The language is at times too colloquial. The inclusion of interactive learning features would be beneficial. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)

A very creative and entertaining presentation - nicely done!

Structure and content[edit]

Theory and research are well integrated, and key concepts are well identified. The flow between ideas could be improved. Content appears accurate.


Ideas are communicated clearly through dialogue. Communication via visuals is very creative, but could have been improved in areas (where figures were still are a long period of time). Illustrative examples are used really well throughout.

Production quality[edit]

Sound and picture quality are good. Basic tools are used well to create a very engaging presentation. Professionalism could be improved. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)
