Complete Scheme of Work Eduqas GCSE Media Studies 9-1 comp 2a TV Sitcoms IT Crowd and Friends 20 lessons.

This bundle includes all lessons, fully resourced for the new Eduqas GCSE Media Studies TV Sitcoms option for component 2a.

Mock questions are also built into the unit. Please note: these are planned on smart software. I have converted all to powerpoint but often the export changes the format and things may need adjusting - if you plan on using the powerpoints to teach, please check these before delivery.

AQA GCSE Media Studies Unit 2 Understanding the Media

AQA GCSE Media Studies Unit 2 Understanding the Media

Specifically written for AQA GCSE Media Studies Unit 2, 'Investigating the Media' whereby students must "analyse and respond to media texts/ topics using the key media concepts and appropriate terminology" however the skills covered are necessary for all media students. This bundle will enable you to teach the key media concepts using an excellent documentary (which is freely available on YouTube) as your anchor point. Note- this pack does not look at documentary as a specific 'genre'. This pack would be great to introduce the key concepts or to consolidate knowledge. Plenty of Ofsted- friendly (booo) stuff in here too. Also useful for revision. The mark schemes provided are adapted from the AQA GCSE spec but, as noted, all specs require investigations and analyses of media products and the success criteria I have written is easily adaptable. This pack contains; - 76 slide PowerPoint covering the media focuses listed below - class tasks/ discussions - homework tasks - 3 exam style assessments with marking criteria grids provided for each (inspired by the AQA GCSE Media syllabus but easily adaptable for your own spec) - teacher notes Covers- - denotation and connotation - dvd cover analysis - mise en scene - music and sound - mode of address - genre conventions - ideology - camera shots - institution - narrative - representation
