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

Section A, Component 1: Advertising and marketing of Bond (Media Language unit)

This discounted series of 5 lessons comprises two doubles and a single which centre around all of the key media terminology indicated in the EDUQAS GCSE specification with regards to Media Language and James Bond. Each Double/single includes a H/W task, resources and in-built assessment with the last lesson serving as both a review of Media language terms to date as well as a selection of LV9 terms for the analysis of 'Spectre' and The Man with the Golden Gun' posters. I have taught this unit to my students who fed back that it was extremely enjoyable, informative and user-friendly. Their assessments in Lesson 20 were also to a high standard based upon retained learning. The lessons look at: -Codes -Conventions -Intertextuality -Homage -Narrative theory (Propp, Levi-Strauss, Barthes and Todorov) -The codes and conventions of movie posters -The history of Bond

What is an infographic? Fully-resourced and differentiated lesson.

What is an infographic? Fully-resourced and differentiated lesson.

A fully-resourced and differentiated lesson to teach students what an infographic is and the purpose of one. I have used this lesson both in teaching English (looking at purposes of texts or for a way to present student research) or as part of teaching GCSE Media Studies. I have included it as one-lesson but it could easily be split into multiple lessons in which students research a chosen topic and then create a final version of their own infographic. Please leave a review if you find it helpful.
