Media Studies Glossary display

Media Studies Glossary display

A collection of media terminology complete with definitions to print and put on the walls of a media classroom. I have found the key words are the center of everything I do with me media class and they always forget them unfortunately, so I thought how can I change this? How can I make them more independent in finding out the information. I have placed this on a notice board and students now get up and go to the board to refresh their memories- It works really well.

How do we View Migrants? - Intro to Migration/Critical Thinking Skills

How do we View Migrants? - Intro to Migration/Critical Thinking Skills

A lesson I used as an introductory lesson about migration and the different types of migrant and as a way of highlighting biases present in the media and our individual world view. Best used with new groups of students of any year 7-11 as most of the tasks are reflective and discussion based and involve random pairings and a main carousel activity. Very engaging and easy to manage lesson. Could definitely be used in a Tutor time/Citzenship lesson also and possibly for English to alert students to journalistic bias and to help them read texts more critically.
