Media Audiences for A-Level and GCSE

Media Audiences for A-Level and GCSE

The two schemes of work share a lot of content, so you don't really want to buy both separately. You could just buy one and then adjust for delivery, however I have made these adjustments to suit my classes already. If you teach both A-Level and GCSE then getting both is a good idea. Main differences are grades to levels, some of the more advanced content has been removed or replaced in the GCSE scheme and some of the tasks have more age appropriate resources. I have also included a digital mark book which can help for tracking of assessments.

Digital Markbook with 6 assessment points per year group - KS4 - Years 9,10,11 - significant groups

Digital Markbook with 6 assessment points per year group - KS4 - Years 9,10,11 - significant groups

This digital mark book is designed to replace the hand-written columns found at the back of a teacher’s planner. This should help make schools go paper-less and also cut down on teacher’s admin time. You can enter up to 6 assessments per year group for years 9, 10 and 11. Each assessment can be renames, you can change the 'out of score' which will automatically update percentages. You can set the corresponding levels for each year group and the sheet will provide you with average target grades, pie charts and flight paths. You can then use this data to inform your tracking.

The School Climate Control Conference (Video)

The School Climate Control Conference (Video)

This 90 minute video covers all the components that are necessary to provide a positive school and classroom climate. I reference the bully proof classroom app in the conference, this is no longer available. The bpconlineacademy is no longer available as well. The conference is ideal for a whole school in-service and can be used to acquire professional development hours. A great resource.
