FULL SCHEME - Media Industries – GCSE

FULL SCHEME - Media Industries – GCSE

This scheme covers the topic of Media Industries as part of the theoretical framework as outlined by AQA in their latest specification. This can easily be adapted for other exam boards and media courses. PLEASE NOTE – these lessons have been adapted from my A-Level resources. If you have already purchased those then you may not want to buy these. These lessons have mostly the same content, however they have had their levels adapted for GCSE and some of the info has been removed to make them more suitable for younger years. If you have purchased the A-level lessons you could make these changes yourself. If you teach both A-level and GCSE then I strongly recommend you buy the A-level lessons as they contain more information and extra lessons. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is the entire scheme collated with extras. I have created a series of full schemes of work. They are designed to be taught in order as each lesson builds and develops on prior learning. However, each lesson is self-contained with its objectives and outcomes so can be delivered as you see fit. Each scheme includes enough material to last approximately 12 lessons and is easily adapted to last more. These lessons are easily differentiated and come with everything you need. Each lesson is conceived as a Power-Point presentation which includes starter, main and plenary activities, lesson objectives and success criteria (mapped to the AQA specification for first teaching Sep 2017), terminology with definitions, contemporary media examples (print, broadcast and e-media), questions, tasks and extension activities. There are also extensive teacher’s notes which will help to develop your own knowledge and delivery of the topic. 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 entire scheme comes fully loaded with a separate terminology list, assessment mark sheet, revision and practise lessons and a time-saving “Symbol Feedback System”. 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. These schemes have been organised to be delivered in the following order: • Media Language • Media Audiences • Media Industries • Representations and the Media There are other schemes available in “my shop” to assist with practical media skills including Photoshop.

GCSE - Four Full Schemes of Work - Media Studies

GCSE - Four Full Schemes of Work - Media Studies

Four full schemes of work with over 35 lessons (each with extension activities). These have been adapted from my A-Level resources to suit younger years. If you have bought the A-Level lessons then you don't need these as you could make the changes yourself. Each scheme contains assessment mark sheets, terminology lists, symbol feedback system and individual Power-Point lessons (with objectives and success criteria). I deliver these schemes in Year 10. In Year 9 I deliver my 'Pre-GCSE' and 'Photoshop' Schemes. In Year 11 we tackle the course specific content such as coursework and exam practice.
