  1. What is the problem and why is it important?
  2. How can specific motivation and/or emotion theories and research help?
  3. Provide an example or case study.
  4. Provide some focus questions.

Focus questions:

  • What is the second focus question?
  • What is the third focus question?

1st main heading[edit source]

Content goes here.

For the topic development, provide at least 3 bullet-points of key content to be covered. Include key citations.

For the book chapter, write in paragraphs typically consisting of three to five sentences. Avoid one sentence paragraphs and overly long paragraphs.

2nd main heading[edit source]

If a section has a lot of content, then consider structuring it into two to five sub-headings such as is shown here.

Figures[edit source]

Figure 1. This is an example of an image with a numbered, descriptive caption.

Important points about using figures:

  1. Figures can be embedded throughout the chapter, starting with the Overview section.
  2. Figures should be used to illustrate concepts, add interest, and provide examples.
  3. Figures should be captioned (using a number and a description) in order to explain their relevance to the text.
  4. Possible images can be found at Wikimedia Commons.
  5. Images can also be uploaded if they have appropriate licenses for re-use or if you created the image.
  6. Each figure should be referred to at least once in the main text (e.g., see Figure 1).

Tables[edit source]

Important points about using tables:

  1. Tables can be an effective way to organise content.
  2. Tables should be captioned (using APA style) in order to explain its relevance to the text.
  3. Each table should be referred to at least once in the main text (e.g., see Table 1 and Table 2).

Here are two example tables which could be adapted:

Table 1.

Quiz questions[edit source]

Quiz questions are optional. Important points about using quizzes:

  2. To learn about different types of quiz questions, see Help:Quiz.
  3. Rather than presenting one longer quiz at the end, consider adding, say, one review quiz question per major section.
  4. Try to assess conceptual knowledge, rather than trivia.

Here are some simple example quiz questions:
