Eduqas GCSE (9-1) Film Studies Introductory Unit horror focus - narrative structure focus Lesson 4

As part of my suggested Long Term Plan for the GCSE Film Studies (9-1) course, i will be beginning the course with an introductory unit in which we explore many of the key elements of the course linked to the horror genre. This will then feed into component 3 in which students can produce an extract from a horror film. By including an introductory unit, students will be given opportunity to explore all of the key areas before being shown any of the set texts and so enable a deeper level of analysis when the films themselves are explored. Plus, the component 3 piece will be strengthened with a thorough exploration of the genre, leaving a greater amount of time to focus on planning, filming and editing the coursework itself. This is lesson four from the scheme of work. Lessons are being planned daily throughout the summer break so please return for updates. Accompanying Long Term Plan and Medium Term plan available through my shop. Any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Rabbit Proof Fence Student Workbook (film analysis)

Rabbit Proof Fence Student Workbook (film analysis)

This 32 page booklet has been designed as part of an Australian film studies unit focusing on the 2002 film The Rabbit Proof Fence. It includes activities exploring characterisation, the beliefs of the time and analysing the aesthetic features (film and language techniques) which students are to complete during and after viewing the film. While used for year 9 in this case, it could be applicable for any junior secondary grade. It could also be used during NAIDOC week. This booklet contains resources which would be useful for preparing students to write a range of genres including film reviews, feature articles, persuasive texts and analytical essays. There are questions about the events/themes/character’s perspectives and the effects of the aesthetic features. It introduces students to concepts such as textual structures, language features, visual features, film techniques and themes. It includes information about the socio cultural context of the film, articles about the women on which the film is based, key quotes from the film, scaffolded analysis activities for key scenes, an introduction to evaluative language and how it is used to describe films. The final pages include an explanation of how to structure an essay (along with planning and editing steps).

Card Sort: Censorship of the Media?

Card Sort: Censorship of the Media?

The issue of censorship continues to be a controversial subject in most democratic societies. Should public morally be protected? Should children be shielded from violence and sexually explicit material? Should the rich and famous be protected by privacy laws? Should the government stop terrorist groups using social media to recruit and spread their ideology? How about freedom of speech or the issue of fake news? This outstanding resource has been tried and tested in the classroom over many years and aims to help students understand some of the arguments for and against the use of censorship. It can be used as a starter, plenary or main activity to accompany any main stream text book or resource on this topic. The nature of the task means that it appeals to the full range of ability. The main activity involves getting students to cut out the cards in lesson, organise them into their most persuasive order under the two main headings and then sick them into their books. Once students have fed back their results to a class discussion, they can then have a go at the extended writing activity or add additional ideas from the class discussion. Alternatively, they can create a key and then sort through the cards and then stick the sheet into their book or you could cut out the cards and place them into an envelope for them to sort prior to a discussion on the topic. This is a great resource that can be easily adapted to suit your classroom and expectations. When you purchase this resource, you will be able to download a single page Word Document which contains a learning objective, instructions, two heading cards as well as sixteen statements that can sorted. The aims of this lesson / activity are: Theme: Moral Moral philosophy and ethics Know: What is censorship of the media? Understand: What are the arguments for and against censorship of the media? Evaluate: How far should media be censored in a democratic society? WILF - What am I Looking For? Identify and describe - What is censorship of the media? Explain - the arguments for and against censorship of the media? Analyse - If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. We aim to produce cheap and affordable resources for either the price of a good cup of coffee or a happy meal so that you can spend more quality time with the people who matter.
