Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2014/Anger and motivation
Bits and pieces
Hi, nice chapter and content. I've had a few ideas and found a few things that could help with the overall presentation of the chapter (listed below) that you might want to incorporate. I also completely APA formatted your reference list (although I wasn't sure what to do with one of the authors who had a Jnr. title, so you best check that one up yourself). Good luck!
- I think it would be interesting to have in the overview or introduction a little mention that anger happens to be the most prevalent day-to-day emotion, thus giving your presentation a more X-factor because it's such a big part of human life.
- I highly recommend you use some picture in your presentation to add to the general look of it. If you don't know how there's a moodle forum on it here: http://learnonline.canberra.edu.au/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=306102
- Many times when you use the et al. reference system in a sentence you use a comma straight after, such as “According to Carver et al., (2009)”. Now im not 100% sure on this one but I think that it’s not supposed to have a comma after it. Best to check it up!
- Your “definitional” paragraphs for both anger and motivation seem to be too bullet-pointy, if you know what I mean. There are just single, sentences that don't really flow together. I think you should incorporate all those definitions and symptoms of anger into one coherent paragraph to help improve the feel - or simply present them as bullet points perhaps.
- Where you have stated that: "There are positive outcomes from anger such as determination and motivation. (Kassinove, H, 1995)" I think you should definitely go into a bit more detail in this section as it seems like a very interesting point and it leaves the reader wondering a little bit.
- There are a lot of times you have accidentally ended the sentence and then put the reference in, such as: "Anger consists of multiple components. (Darwin, C, 1965)" - It's a very easy thing to miss but I think it would be devastating to lose marks for a simple full stop in the wrong place!
- Another referencing thing, here: “Robinson & Price (1982) studied the…” - I think you should be using the word ‘and’ rather than the ‘&’.
- "...the individual will either use approach or avoid behaviour depending on the environment and situation." This sentence should say avoidance instead of avoid, I think.
- "Carver and White (1994) developed the BAS (behavioural activation system) and BIS (behavioural inhibition system) to measure incentive and threat sensitivity..." - I think it would be important to mention that they developed the SCALES to measure this, not the BIS and BAS itself, as I thought those terms referred to underlying neural stuff that regulate behaviour.
- "Veling (2012) and colleagues" - Here I think sticking to et al. or including the entire citation would be best.
- "Associating anger with rewarding stimuli increases reward sensitivity (Ford et al., 2010)" - You've kind of just thrown this sentence in there without a context or introduction. It’s a little awkward to read. Perhaps replace that sentence somewhere in the paragraph or reword it a little.
Just thought I would provide you with a reference in terms of the role of anger and anxiety on motivation. http://www.selfdeterminationtheory.org/SDT/documents/2005_AssosKaplanKanat-MaymonRoth.pdf It may be useful -depending on whether you choose to talk about a particular age group. Good luck with your chapter! :) --U3054867 (discuss • contribs) 02:07, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Hey, i came across this when looking for information for a different assignment, thought it might be an interesting read. http://www.psychologicalscience.org/index.php/news/releases/anger-makes-people-want-things-more.html Lucydiamond1008 (discuss • contribs) 02:30, 21 October 2014 (UTC)lucydiamond1008

Hey there, as someone who is also talking anger, I found this an interesting and different view about aggressive behaviour compared to my chapter! I liked how you defined the several different types of anger, and how it can be relatable to criminal activity. Again, I am a fan of including a quiz at the end of the book chapter - I hope to do this myself. It provides an interesting way to ensure your reader is understanding your book chapter efficiently, as well as learning all about your topic! --U3069714 (discuss • contribs) 07:34, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
- Segway from Motivation to anger and the relationship between the two could have been summarized in fewer paragraphs – definitions of motivation are relevant but perhaps not required to be so long especially considering it is a chapter which is latter.
- sentence structure could be aimed more at readers less accustomed to scholar writing. Overly complex sentences which at times do not give an argument/point
- paragraphs change in size and some do not make sense.
- no constructive examples??
The accompanying multimedia presentation has been marked according to the marking criteria. Marks are available via the unit's Moodle site. Written feedback is provided below, plus there is a general feedback page. Responses to this feedback can be made by . If you would like further clarification about the marking or feedback, contact the unit convener. If you wish to dispute the marks, see the suggested marking dispute process.
A clear and thorough summary of the book chapter - congratulations.
The structure is clear, and is well defined at the beginning of the presentation. Theory and research are well integrated throughout. Motivation is a heavy focus of the presentation. An area for improvement could be to focus more heavily on research and theory around anger. Illustrative examples are referred to, but not explored within the presentation.
Communication is quite good. The voice-over uses good expression, but is too fast throughout. The slides are informative and put forward important information. Images and figures could be incorporated in order to further explain concepts and make the presentation more engaging.
Basic production tools are used effectively. Audio is clear, with minimal background noise, although could have been slightly louder. Visual quality is good. A link back to the book chapter is provided. The correct copyright license information is provided.
