Movie Genres Wordsearch Media Studies Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Movie Genres Wordsearch Media Studies Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Cold Food'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

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
