Social movement motivation in collectivist cultures[edit source]

Hi Maddison :) Great topic! It has made me think about whether there might be some research around differences in social movement motivation in collectivist cultures as compared to non-collectivist cultures?
I wrote a paper about some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social action for a political science course and remember finding some interesting psychology journal articles in my research but I can't seem to find them now. My quick search through UCanFind on the library site didn't find any of them either, but I did find a different article published this year that might be of use to you: Missing in (Collective) Action: Ideology, System Justification, and the Motivational Antecedents of Two Types of Protest Behavior (Jost, J.T., Becker, J., Osborne, D. & Badaan, V.)

Effects of social movement[edit source]

Hi Madison! It would be interesting to consider the effects of a social movement. Maybe focusing on one particular social movement of the past and looking how it has affected the world, people and society would be a good thing to write about. It would also be interesting to look at the negative impacts of a social movement. Another interesting relationship which can be drawn is culture and perception of a social movement - how social movements are different across the globe and how sometimes, it can be universal. --U3143124 (discusscontribs) 4:25, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

Spelling[edit source]

Hi, I am very interested in your topic and am looking forward to reading it when it is completed. I have made a few minor spelling edits to your page whilst I was reading. You can find the edits here-differences between the revisions. I hope this helps! --U3143144 (discusscontribs) 16:44, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello! I also made some minor spelling changes and added capitalisation to a few words within your 'See also' and 'External links' sections. Seems like a really interesting topic so far :) --SL96 (discusscontribs) 01:52, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

Your chapter is looking great now, well done! Made a few edits to spelling and added italics to journals in your references :) you can see the changes i made here. --SL96 (discusscontribs) 09:38, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

Functionalistic Theories[edit source]

Hey there! I think the theories you have chosen thus far are very important and relevant to this topic, especially SDT (just make sure you extrapolate intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in these theories). I noticed in your feedback James suggested an examination of the functionalist theories. I did a quick search of the UC Library Database and it came up with a book which you can borrow which I think may be relevant: Smith, A. D. (1973). The concept of social change: A critique of the functionalist theory of social change. Boston;London;: Routledge & Kegan Paul. All the best! --U3144362 (discusscontribs) 03:21, 18 October 2017 (UTC)U3144362 2:21 PM


Feedback[edit source]

Hey, I found this research article on Collective Identification and Social Movement Participation hope this may assist you with research :) --NHP96 (discusscontribs) 04:35, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

I also found another article that may be useful its titled 'Affective and Reactive Emotions in and around Social Movements' hope this helps! --NHP96 (discusscontribs) 04:42, 22 October 2017 (UTC)

Title, sub-title, TOC[edit source]

  1. Great

User page[edit source]

  1. Created
  2. Used effectively

Social contribution[edit source]

  1. Description and links are good - even better are direct links to contributions - either direct to the section on the page or even better go to history, compare the previous version of the page with the version after you edited, copy the web address, and use that as the link to evidence

Section headings[edit source]

  1. Basic, generic heading structure
  2. Watch out for providing too much background material e.g., history - instead briefly summarise and provide wiki links to further information
  3. The key will be to focus on the motivational theory and research evidence about why people get engaged in social movements
  4. Perhaps one theory to consider could be functionalist theory - see the M&E tutorial about Clary and Snyder's volunteer motivations - participation in social movements could be understood as a volunteer activity. SDT could also be relevant. But you'll need to be selective - I suggest a max. of 3 major theories - then focus on the relevant research pertaining to these theories, along with examples, and practical applications etc.
  5. Room for more examples, case studies etc.
  6. A section should contain either 0 or 2+ sub-sections - avoid having sections which contain 1 sub-section.

Key points[edit source]

  1. Limited development of key points
  2. The most important aspects will be what are the main motivational theories that can help to understand engagement in social movement, and what are the key research findings?

Image[edit source]

  1. Effective use of one image
  2. Consider expanding the image size and using text wrap
  3. Consider using a caption which more clearly connects to the theoretical/research-point being made in the text, or using the image as an example of a point being made

References[edit source]

  1. For APA style, check capitalisation, italics etc.
  2. Use the new recommended format for dois -
  3. Do not include issue numbers for journals which are continuously numbered within a volume

Resources[edit source]

  1. Excellent

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a promising chapter, with a strong emphasis on theory, some coverage of research, and room for further development of examples and practical, take-home messages.
  2. For additional feedback, see these copyedits.

Theory[edit source]

  1. Theories are well described and explained, but in a somewhat abstract and, at times, overly detailed manner.
  2. The addition of example to help illustrate the theories would help to make the chapter more understandable and interesting.

Research[edit source]

  1. Some research is described, but the emphasis is theoretical.
  2. When describing important research findings, indicate the size of effects in addition to whether or not there was an effect or relationship.
  3. Greater emphasis on major reviews and meta-analyses would be helpful.

Written expression[edit source]

  1. Written expression
    1. Some paragraphs were overly long. Each paragraph should communicate one key idea in three to five sentences.
    2. Some sentences were overly long.
    3. Some statements could be explained more clearly - see the [explain?] and [Rewrite to improve clarity] tags
    4. More examples could be provided.
  2. Layout
    1. See earlier comments about heading casing
    2. Heading titles can be improved, so that they are more differentiated - e.g., there are several headings called "Influence"
  3. Learning features
    1. Adding more interwiki links would make the text more interactive.
  4. Spelling, grammar and proofreading
    1. Check and correct of of affect vs. effect
  5. APA style
    1. Use APA style for citations. Sources should primarily be peer-reviewed publications.
    2. See new doi format
    3. Do not include issue numbers for journals which are continuously numbered within volumes.

Multimedia feedback

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 see the general feedback page. Responses to this feedback can be made by starting a new section below. If you would like further clarification about the marking or feedback, contact the unit convener.


Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a basic, but sufficient presentation.

Structure and content[edit source]

  1. Many of the comments about the book chapter also apply to this section.
  2. Consider using more examples to help make the presentation more engaging.
  3. Add and narrate an Overview slide, to help orientate the viewer about what will be covered.
  4. No mention of research? Frowny.svg

Communication[edit source]

  1. The presentation makes basic, but effective use of text-based slides, with some images, and narrated audio.

Production quality[edit source]

  1. Question mark is missing from the sub-title on the 1st slide.
  2. Use the full chapter title and sub-title on the opening slide and in the name of the video because this helps to match the book chapter and to clearly convey the purpose of the presentation.
  3. Audio recording quality was generally good but seemed to go a bit quiet in some places.
