Media lessons analysis and creating a short film project.

Media lessons analysis and creating a short film project.

Three lessons for introducing media studies. Analysis of a short film and consideration of media tools. The final lesson requires students to story board thier own short film, using the script provided. This set of lessons was wonderful to teach and I have differentiated it for year 6, up to KS4, although this incarnation was for a low ability year 7 class. These lessons act as a great introduction to considering the use of speech, consideration of props and setting but showcases perspective and camera angles very well. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Left wing and Right wing in politics and the media

Left wing and Right wing in politics and the media

This resource was designed to introduce the ideas of left/right wing to students at KS3/4 who have heard the terms but don’t really know what they mean. I have used it to provide context for students studying a range of subjects and also used it in tutor/pastoral sessions. It is designed to be impartial, allowing students to discuss what they learn without judgement. Especially useful for students studying English or other humanities. It was originally designed to run over 3-4 lessons but as a lot of the slides can generate discussion you could easily pick and choose and make it fit what time you’ve got.

10 x Famous Movies Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Media Studies

10 x Famous Movies Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Media Studies

10 x Wordsearch Puzzle sheets of keywords on the theme of ‘Famous Movies’. Sheets are: Animal Movies Bruce Willis Movies Casablanca Dunkirk Genres Grease Little Mermaid Sci-Fi Movies Star Wars IV: A New Hope Up Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Media Key Words and Meaning - Interactive Glossary

Media Key Words and Meaning - Interactive Glossary

An interactive PowerPoint (PP) with an index page containing 132 key terms from the new AQA Media Studies (8572). Words and meaning taken directly from the new AQA specification. Each word/term on the index page can be clicked on. this will take your student to a slide within the glossary (PP) containing the official AQA meaning of the term. Each slide contains examples, explanations, pictures, audio or video content or links to helpful websites and explanations online. This is an extremely thorough resource that is best used independently by students as a way of learning the subject specific terminology. I have used this in lesson as a dictionary corner tool also, the idea being that you allow students to access the glossary if they are unsure of the meaning or during questioning times you appoint someone who checks the terms on behalf of the class. it is a kineasthetic, audio/visual, dual coded resource. Ways to use it are; For revision In lesson to discover the meaning of new terms as they are introduced For homeworks For posters/displays
