In this video, Richard Galletly (an Academic English Lecturer at Aston University) presents the theory to help when writing an effective essay to discuss and critically evaluate different motivation theories, and gives written and verbal feedback on a student's essay. This video will be useful for students who are writing a critical evaluation, who may need help with essay questions which require critical thinking, who may be interested in studying business at university and may be considering going to the UK to study at an English university. It may also be useful to teachers who would like to know more about how to teach academic writing skills to international students, or local and native students who may struggle with similar tasks. The video begins with an introduction to the theory of critical thinking and writing from a selection of authors including Patrick Tissington, Stella Cottrell, Oshima & Hogue, Gillett and Fitzpatrick, all of whom will be excellent textbooks to follow when teaching or tutoring students with questions such as this. Although giving guidance on an essay such as the one shown as an example can be highly subjective, a broad approach has been applied which should be beneficial to a great number of students and potential students of higher education institutions including Universities and Colleges in the UK.
