Heading casing[edit source]

Hi! I am quite interested in your topic and from some quick research have found another resource you may enjoy reading and/or using. Jory MacKay has a blog about time management (I have placed two links in your working notes for ease) and an interesting question asked is if time management varies across cultures. I also added a link to SDT to help your chapter be a little interactive. Hope this suggestion help!--U3167879 (discusscontribs) 12:36, 19 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks! I have added these into my external links, super interesting content! Brianna Meddemmen (discusscontribs) 09:31, 11 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Brianna Meddemmen. FYI, the recommended Wikiversity heading style uses sentence casing. For example:

Self-determination theory rather than Self-Determination Theory

Here's an example chapter with correct heading casing: Growth mindset development

Title[edit source]

  1. The title is correctly worded and formatted
  2. The sub-title is correctly worded and formatted

User page[edit source]

  1. Excellent - used effectively
  2. Description about self provided, including to external profile Smiley.svg
  3. Consider linking to your eportfolio page and/or any other professional online profile or resume such as LinkedIn. This is not required, but it can be useful to interlink your professional networks.
  4. Link provided to book chapter

Social contribution[edit source]

  1. Excellent - summarised with direct link(s) to evidence

Headings[edit source]

  1. Basic, 1-level heading structure - could benefit from further development, perhaps using a 2-level structure. Currently, there are second-level headings in bold, but they are not appearing the table of contents because heading styles haven't been applied.
  2. See earlier comment about Heading casing.

Key points[edit source]

  1. Overview - Consider:
    1. writing a description of the problem and what will be covered
    2. focus question about the EM
    3. an image
    4. the topic is the EM rather than other TM techniques - link to other chapters for other approaches
  2. Avoid providing too much background information. Briefly summarise general concepts and provide internal wiki links to other book chapters and/or Wikipedia pages for further information. Then focus most of the content of this chapter on directly answering the core question(s) posed by the chapter sub-title. For example, there is a no need for a general section about motivation theories - instead briefly summarise any that are directly relevant to explaining and understanding the EM and link to related book chapters and/or Wikipedia articles for further info. Then focus on psychological theory and research about the practice and efficacy of the EM.
  3. For sections which include sub-section include key points for an overview paragraph prior to branching into the sub-headings
  4. Rather than direct quotes, write in your own words
  5. Excellent use of in-text interwiki links for the first mention of key terms to relevant Wikipedia articles and/or to other relevant book chapters
  6. Conclusion (the most important section):
    1. promising
    2. what might the take-home, practical messages be?
    3. in a nutshell, what are the answer(s) to the question(s) in the sub-title?

Figure[edit source]

  1. Excellent

References[edit source]

  1. Very good
  2. For APA referencing style, check and correct:
    1. add a space after periods

Resources[edit source]

  1. Excellent

Word Limit[edit source]

Hey there! I did a quick word count after proofing your chapter for any grammar and spelling mistakes (I didn't find many by the way!) and noticed you are already at 4084 words. I have a few suggestion for cutting down on the content to ensure you have enough spare words for your conclusion.

  • Try adding dot points in your sections and this way you can cut out a lot of unnecessary extra sentence words.
  • In the improving motivational lives section I think you can cut down on a lot of the info by linking to other chapters and wiki pages and just including a few short sentences and dot points?

- My book chapter mentions it a little and here is the link to a wikipedia page on SDT: Another thing I noticed was the first figure is not referenced, I love your chapter and the interactive monopoly feature boxes, such a great idea! --Ashley Sanders01 (discusscontribs) 00:47, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

thanks so much! I have linked the self determination theory page and cut down my words! --Brianna Meddemmen (discusscontribs) 03:55, 14 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
