Representations in Media Studies

Representations in Media Studies

This visually-engaging and informative resource is perfect for helping Media students to understand the key concept of Representations. Through a range of different and interesting tasks , students learn to identify and understand representations at work in the media, and become familiar with key terms such as 'stereotyping; and 'aspects of character.' The learning journey is progressive and step-by-step, allowing for bite-size chunks of progress to be evident and regular intervals. Students learn to: - Understand that everyone sees images and ideas differently; - Define the key terms 'representations' and 'stereotypes;' - Understand some common representations and stereotypes; - Analyse the reasoning and effects of different representations; - Analyse how different characters are represented in a key media text. The key media text that I have chosen for the main analysis task is the movie 'Warrior' (2011) starring Tom Hardy, but the resources can be easily adapted to suit different media texts should you choose to. All images are licensed for commercial use and are cited on the final slide of the presentation.

Media Key Concepts - Help-sheets/Posters

Media Key Concepts - Help-sheets/Posters

These handy help-sheets have been employed by Media Studies teachers and teachers of literacy across the curriculum in order to build students' vocabularies, and assist their Media Studies analysis. There are help-sheets for each of the main concepts of Media: - Representations - Audience - Media Language and Forms - Institutions Each help-sheet defines what the key concept is (and gives examples), details the key terms and ideas to consider when looking at this area, and offers key questions for students to contemplate and kick-start their analysis. There is also a short example of analysis for each key concept in order to model some of the language, in addition to a variety of other hints and tips. These help-sheets have also been blown up to A3 or A2 size to become engaging and interactive media classroom or literacy across the curriculum posters.

Camera Shots and Angles!

Camera Shots and Angles!

This lesson aims to improve students’ understanding of camera shots and angles, and in particular those used in horror movies. This should enable them to design their own sequences of camera shots and angles when producing their own moving image media texts. I used this lesson in the middle of the planning phase of a horror film trailer. However, as the main learning for the lesson is to be able to define, identify. analyse and use each of the camera shots and angles, it can be used for students at any stage of a media studies course. It includes a range of tasks, most of which are differentiated for different ability ranges, and includes lots of engaging subject matter. The lesson follows a clear learning journey, which is visually expressed to the students frequently throughout the PowerPoint presentation. The learning journey enables students to: - Define each of the camera angles and shots through a group activity; - Identify each of the shots and angles in movies stills; - Analyse why different shots and angles are effective after watching a segment of a film; - Create their own sequence of camera shots and angles for a short moving image piece; - Evaluate their success in using effective camera shots and angles. NOTE: The subject matter used for the final stages of the analysis task may be visually disturbing or inappropriate for some younger students - please check this section and alter it if you need to - you may wish just to pause the video before it gets too gory! All images and videos are licensed for commercial use, and are cited on the final slide of the lesson.
