Talk:Motivation and emotion/Textbook/Emotion/Music
- Well done on getting this underway. I've had a quick look over the current content, tweaked a few parts, and made some suggestions below.
- Overall, the current draft does rely too heavily on too few references. Here's some suggested references and links you may be interested to follow up - http://www.delicious.com/jtneill/emotion+music
- Good image, but the license for File:Youth-runs-wild-440.jpg hasn't been specified - this image will most likely get deleted because it probably doesn't have a free to use license (otherwise, I imagine that the Youth Runs Wild wikipedia article would use this image.
- Different Styles of Music is promising but probably lacks sufficient connection to emotion or referencing. Therefore, perhaps summarise more briefly - and/or add an overall summary - what are the main implications of different types of music and their impacts on emotion?
- The relationship between emotion and music - Bridging the gap between Emotion and Music - This is probably the most important section to be expanded - this will be mainly where you are likely to address the two key marking criteria (theory and research) - the other criteria is quality of expression.
- Make sure to do a careful copy-edit - I've fixed some typos that I found.
- I found this in some of my notes: "Labbe, Schmidt and Babin (2007) found that listening to self-selected music or classical music following exposure to a stressor significantly reduced the negative emotional states and physiological arousal compared to sitting in silence or listening to music chosen by others
Feedback 2[edit source]
This is shaping up - I've fiddled a bit with a simpler structure - see what you think - change back anything you don't like etc. Hope this helps.
- Explain the aims, focus questions, and what will be covered in the chapter.
- The other content could be shifted possibly into other sections to allow the introduction to be more of an overview.
- APA style - check citation style e.g., & should only be used inside brackets and for subsequent citations within a paragraph don't include the year
- I put the info about musical styles into a subpage and added a link to this from the What is music section with the suggestion that you offer a brief summary about music styles. I wonder if somewhere later on it might be possible to create a table which shows which styles correspond mostly typically which type of emotions (I'm not sure what's been done in this area).
- Check out if you haven't found it already:
- http://www.users.muohio.edu/shermalw/edp101as07/Group1a_Gi-project09.doc - looks like some good ideas and references here.
- Remember the marking criteria is Theory 33% and Research 33% so make sure you cover these in as substantial and explicit way as possible - tell the reader in the intro what will be covered and why, then remind in the summary/conclusion what the answers to the focus questions are. The other 33% is written expression, APA style, layout etc.
