(YEAR 12, EDUQAS  LINEAR): AN INTRODUCTION TO CODES AND CONVENTIONS OF NEWSPAPERS (SEC A) STARTER

(YEAR 12, EDUQAS LINEAR): AN INTRODUCTION TO CODES AND CONVENTIONS OF NEWSPAPERS (SEC A) STARTER

This starter is an engaging way to encourage learners to interact with key Newspaper front cover terminology. The task is; interactive, promotes discovery learning and can either be executed as part of a group or as a standalone, independent task. Summary of task: The resource includes 4 newspaper covers (The Sun, The Daily Mail, The Daily Mirror and The Times) which will develop learners baseline knowledge of the newspaper market and have been carefully selected (two belonging to the forms EDUQAS has selected). The resource also includes all of the key terms as well as their definitions muddled as well as a two slide power point that both explains the task and shows students the terms. The task goes as follows: In groups of four, you will each be give a different newspaper front cover. Each group will have exactly the same terms and definitions assigned to each newspaper, regardless of whether they are on the newspaper or not. You must first match the correct term to its definition and then place the term on the area of the newspaper you believe it references. (TIP: If you laminate both the newspaper and cut of the laminated arrows, I have left a space at the top of each arrow for student to physically write on the term in a board marker, which can be rubbed off after). Be warned a cover may not have an example of the terms on it!

YEAR 12 (MEDIA EDUQAS LINEAR): Comp 1, Sect A: An Intro to ML in 'The Times' and 'The Daily Mirror

LESSON 11-13 (TRIPLE): This lesson explores the codes and conventions of newspapers as well as the terminology used on covers e.g. mastheads, puff, standalone etc. The Triple lesson culminates in a walking, talking mock whereby students are supported with content from the examiner's indicative feedback on a mock question from the SAM's exemplar assessments. Students will attempt this mock and will be able to bring the resource they design into the mock. This lesson is heavily based upon key terminology and discovery learning. It covers: -Tabloids vs Broadhseets -Red-tops -An overview of the current decline in print with a task focused on 'The Times' and 'The Daily Mirror' whereby students compile facts that they can put into their exam responses to impress the examiner. -Circulation and Readership -Left-Wing vs Right-Wing ideologies in newspapers -Application and assessment of all retained Media Language terms learnt last H Term e.g. Codes, conventions, mise-en-scene, Direct Mode of Address, Anchorage etc. This lesson contains a H/W task based on the fact-sheets provided by the examining board as well as a fantastic resource found on ideologies and agenda's of the two newspapers (knowledge needed for the next lesson). The resource also includes to readership breakdowns of the newspapers as well as a worksheet and reusable starter whereby when laminated, students need to match up the correct conventional terms of a newspaper cover with that of 4 different newspaper covers. This will be uploaded as a series of lessons on Component 1, Section A and will be part of a group of resources with different theories/terms as headings under each Exam Component. This lesson is therefore Ideal for those wanting to Team Teach or teach Component 1, Sections A and B at differing times. 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.

FULL BREAKDOWN Eduqas GCSE Media Studies 9-1 tracking spreadsheet tracker using WJEC 2017 summer

FULL BREAKDOWN Eduqas GCSE Media Studies 9-1 tracking spreadsheet tracker using WJEC 2017 summer

Designed on Microsoft excel, this tracking document will help you keep track of the progress of your KS4 Media Studies students, with specific columns for section of each exam paper and for individual coursework marks. This NEW AND IMPROVED sheet will auto calculate total marks on each unit AS WELL AS ESTIMATED GRADES FOR EACH QUESTION - which will be converted into a 9-1 grade as well as totalling overall marks, which then feed into an overall grade prediction. The predictions have been calculated using last year's WJEC grade boundaries and the % of marks needed for each grade on each unit. This % mark has then been converted for the new weighting on the new spec. All you need to do is add the pupil information and the marks they have achieved for each question and the rest is done for you. Please be aware that these are not official grade boundaries and it is guess work at this stage. I have tried to make my predictions as reliable as possible by converting from old spec boundaries and converting % etc, but cannot guarantee that these will be the exact boundaries provided by the board. I have also created similar spreadsheets for AQA GCSE English 9-1, old spec AQA Media GCSE and Media A level too; check out my shop for these. A Level will too be added in due course - subscribe for notifications! For reference - I have mapped an old D grade to a new grade 3, a C to a 4, a B to a 5, an A to a 7 and an A* to an 8. Any problems with this or formula doing strange things, please contact me on steel123@hotmail.com
