This 90 minute Taster Day presentation was designed with the sole propose of addressing the following three areas:
-To ensure the uptake of Media and interest/ engagement of the subject.
-Address the impact in a frank and open way early doors with regards to the AS course and the additional content that will come with the 2021 changes to set forms.
-To engage students with a topic and a set text (ASSASSINS CREED III:LIBERATION) that they would study at either AS or A2 as well as engage students with a text that will cover later in the course/ that many of our previous cohort lacked confidence with.

ACADEMIC HIT SQUAD:
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.
