Representation and Media Impact

Representation and Media Impact

This powerpoint contains video clips which may not be suitable for all learners (some cover body dysmorphia, eating disorders and other mental health issues) and so I strongly advise that you watch them before showing to a class (they are age appropriate, however). Again, this lesson may be useful for Media BTEC or a lesson reviewing cultural trends/the harm that representation can cause.

Introduction to Media and Representation

Introduction to Media and Representation

As the title suggests, this forty-five minute lesson might be useful for any Media BTECs or as an introduction (for KS3/KS4) to what representation is/means. It focuses on McDonald’s and could be used with the award winning documentary “Supersize Me”.

A LEVEL and GCSE Media - Semiotic Analysis Guidance Map

A LEVEL and GCSE Media - Semiotic Analysis Guidance Map

This is a double sided resource (great for laminating). It is deigned to guide students through an independent analysis of any media text. I created this for A Level Media, but also use it to stretch and challenge my GCSE students. We use laminated copies in class, students choose one activity/question to complete at a time. It breaks down a daunting analytical task into small chunks. I have found it great for engaging boys.

OCR A Level Media Studies The Jungle Book

OCR A Level Media Studies The Jungle Book

OCR New A Level Media Studies Spec Here we have quite an information heavy powerpoint focusing on The Jungle Book - 2016 and 1967 versions. The powerpoint is far from perfect - but if it can save someone else from the trauma of tralling the internet for information - I will be happy! It has some assessment questions in there, with one big assessment essay at the end - you will find an essay plan help sheet to go with this in the bundle. You also have a marketing strategies handout and a production timeline handout. I hope it can be of some help!
