YEAR 12 EDUQAS: COMP 1, SEC A, MED LANG (NEWSPAPERS= TEACHER EXEMPLAR WRITTEN RESPONSE TO SAMS QUES

YEAR 12 EDUQAS: COMP 1, SEC A, MED LANG (NEWSPAPERS= TEACHER EXEMPLAR WRITTEN RESPONSE TO SAMS QUES

This resource includes: -A timed response written by myself on the SAM's question for the two-year linear A-Level. -Links of where to obtain the mark scheme and indicative content -Written lesson plan idea for how to use in class (See Below) QUESTION ANSWERED: How does media language incorporate viewpoints and ideologies in these front pages of The Sun and The Daily Mail? I wrote the following 15 mark response under timed conditions in class with my students. I gave them 30 minutes to write the response to this question. Lesson idea (Single): Get students to mark this essay (which when moderated by another Media Teacher and my class was awarded full marks, 15 marks) either before or after they attempt it themselves. This will either give your students a basis to scaffold their work upon or an exemplar after their own timed response to indicate how they may improve. Either course of action works best when done in groups of 3-4 and feedback given to teacher. I got my students to mark the essay and do the following: -Give it a grade out of 15 and note down the level. -Using the indicative content write down any WWW's and EBI's NOTE: I am following EDUQAS Teaching Model 1 in my teaching/ SOW and my school is only providing Media Studies at A-Level, as a Two- Year Course. Moreover, each lesson has a task whereby students RAG (Red, Amber, Green) what they have learnt in the lesson against an Examiner checklist (Differentiation, peer assessment). If you liked this resource and found it useful, it would be greatly appreciated if you could feedback or rate my resource as I am constantly trying to adapt and refine my resources to improve the learning of my students. Many thanks.

This lesson covers a post-modern approach to representation by exploring colonialism, post-colonial ideas and globalised media. - Individual Power-Point lesson with objectives, success criteria mapped to grades/levels, starter activity, main tasks with examples, plenary assessment, extension activities for further learning and extensive teachers notes The full scheme of Media Representation includes enough content to last well over 20 hours in the classroom, including: - Individual Power-Point lessons such as this one - Comprehensive terminology list covering every element of the topic required by students - A variety of ‘in topic’ assessments to track progress and learning - Practical and written assessment activities for the end of the topic - A time saving and innovative ‘symbol marking’ feedback system - Home learning questions - Assessment mark sheet - Revision and practice lessons The full scheme covers the topic of Media Representation as part of the theoretical framework as outlined by AQA in their latest specification, but can just as easily serve any exam board and a variety of courses. There are extensive references to the academic theories relevant to Media Representation and detailed teachers notes on each slide to help your own understanding and delivery. These notes include possible answers and responses to the tasks set out in the lessons and help to make this as close to a “teach-by-numbers” experience as possible. All you need to do is read through the lessons beforehand to perfect your delivery. The full scheme is designed for A-level but is easily adapted to suit GCSE, BTEC and any other course. It is ideal for teachers who have little to no previous experience with the academic side of the media, as well as for those who require accurate and detailed lessons on the topics. “This is a massive time saver for any media teacher. All of the example texts are included so you don’t have to trudge around the internet looking for things. The theories are clearly and simply explained and the terminology list is a real bonus. I can’t tell you how many hours this has saved me, plus my students have begun to really engage with the lessons. I can’t thank you enough for this – well worth the money!” “The symbol marking feedback thing is great. I gave feedback to an entire class in 10 minutes within a lesson so didn’t have to take books home to mark. That alone was worththe money Thanks you so much”
