Pupils will be exposed to key terminology and various news reports linked to sensational news reporting that impact on an audience. They will be guided to consider Malcolm X’s comment about the Media’s power through the use of language. They will culminate with the creation of a visual resource for revision.
This lesson focuses on teaching year 9 pupils to take good photos. It is an interactive lesson and should be delivered over a double lesson (2 hours) so pupils work can be uploaded and shared and discussed, allowing time to re-do shots. Pupils may use phones but digital slr camera’s would be best.
The lesson has support questions to aid pupils in understanding the requirements of each Assessment objective and the activities are a back to basic exploration of the steps in linguistics. There is also a taster task from OCR to get pupils clear on the expectations of the exam.
