Kia Ora, this resource has been re-written for the new eduqas film studies GCSE set texts global - and I am excited! I lobbied for this film to be considered so YAY! The workbook has been updated [ april 2022] and has a detachable back page if you want to avoid the spoiler of Rosa. It’s 22 pages and will form an teaching and revision guide The workbook takes the students through the who what and why - and with the PPTS should get them ready to answer some questions as well as provide a solid introduction to the satire of the film, the context and filming. There are three PPTs - the longest is aimed film, but can work with an English subject eg the NZ curriculm and will fit into an extended media study of film The two worksheets are to support film viewing for any of the subjects as the teacher can select the emphasis The longer PPT has a research task, an end of module essay. Youtube markers are current as at 27/09/2020 I anticipate adding to this so please check in for updates after the UK summer 2022 exams - although this film will not be examined until 2024 by eduqas. I will be uploading more questions in August 2022

Winters Bone film A Level Eduqas resource current 2022 2023

(0)
This is workbook for Winters Bone suitable for Eduqas A Level new curriculum 2018+ addition to resourcce revision PPT Feb 2020 This approximately 32+ pages - it is best used by being printed in colour. It has quite a bit of technical teaching for film - eg 3pt lighting, camera shot, costume. It is assumed that this film might be at the beginning of teaching A Level film and therfore introduces more techinical language. However, the prupose is to teach spectatorship and the work book is geared towards the Eduqas ( WJEC) a level A condition of purchase of thi resource is that it will not be shared on-line. It is supplied in word foramt so that you can personalise it.

Do The Right Thing Spike Lee student workbook updated 2021

(0)
This workbook is 30+ pages to support A Level film study - for the Eduqas exams 2019 + . Updated Nov 2021 { now includes a curated PPT of useful youtube documentary help - useful for remote teaching/homework] The workbook covers initial reactions to the film with some original reviews, it has sections on cinematograpy, props and costume, context and narrative, with a strong focus on Lee the auteur : celebrity auteur or ‘sellebrity auteur’. It looks into Mookie: the hero or anti hero, and the complexity that Lee wrote, directed and starred in the film. There is a model scene analysis, and prompt for students to start their own. There are plenty of opportunities for students to record their own responses, and work alone, but this workbook is designed to be used with teacher support, and peer interaction. There are discussion prompts, questions to begin paragprah writing to build into essay responses that address that this film is part of Component A - a comparative study. ( Although this workbook is stand alone and does not assume which film it will be paired with) I like these books to be visually appealing so they look best when printed in colour. Please be respectful and do not put this work on line for your students. It is a word format so you can easily modify and insert your school logo etc., if you want. UPDATED 2021

This a 60 slide PPT which should take two lessons to unpack. It has short writing tasks, key vocab word to build stronger answers. It has over arching challenge questions and a slide of exam style questions. It refers to likely areas of examination such as sterotyping/ genres eg performance MV , this is not suitable for self teaching by students - but would easily adapt to a teacher recording a narration over the slides, and work within could be homework as well as class work… Statistics such as revenue are fairly up to date but they change too frequently!
Pulp Fiction student work book

Pulp Fiction student work book

(0)
This is a work book for Film studies - as the film has a high restricted rating, it is assumed this film is done in a Year 13 class after a year of film study - so this DOES NOT go over film language as it is assumed students have already been taught basics. The workbook is structured to explore auteur: Tarantino as the Director and, as Music sound track auteur which has become his trademark. It looks at trademark shots such as the trunk shot - the elliptical narrative, the role of discombobulated dialogue, the casting The work book could be use as part of a remote learning scheme, but would be better suited to explicit guided viewing. The role of how differently audiences react, hyper reality, binary theory is covered in questions students should respond to.

Knowledge Organiser [5] The Taming of the Shrew Shakespeare

(0)
This is a series of 5 knowledge organisers which build sequentially from each other introducing the form of the play, acts, context and moving onto the complicated ideas about how/if this is a comedy. The 5th organiser focuses on Kates Act 5 speech and 3 of the organisers have prompt essay questions. I have also attached a teacher viewing sheet of online video verision which had working links checked in August 2022 - obviously these can change I also attach a copy of the 2012 Guardian review which is a helpful tool for classroom discussions.

This is for students to revise expectations for Component 1. It reviews the marks awarded, the timings and the gritty specifics to Comp 1. This resource is only suitable for use with teacher guidance and is only accurate to GCSE after the Summer GCSE 2018. It is quite prescriptive with timings, and working smart with the question marks and Section B. It is an A3 format. Hope it helps.

Pans Labyrinth del Torro film PPTS and workbook

(0)
PPTS, work book and essay template I have been teaching Pans Lab., since 2008 and there are heap of resources out there: this is suitable for IB or A Level - I have used fo both. It is MY take on how to teach it, over 20 hours including film viewing. Th resources require teacher guidance, except the one PPT of pre viewing - this is my curated guide for students to work through by themselves before any teaching/viewing of the film! I have updated it October 2021 - if there are broken links please let me know! The remaining PPTS - are for one guided teaching and vewing, one for cinematography, and one for revision pre exam - so four in total. The work book is word doc and editable: and the word template doc is for PETAL structure paragraphs to build a structured essay for film. Do check back as I am compiling a resource PPT - eg magazines and exam questions - I have the 2021 UK Autumn papers and will be paraphrasing from and you can down load that when it is available!

This is a one off lesson - about 60 to 90 minutes - and has links for students to do further reading which is why it could take 90 minutes. It has some excerpts from the controversial Ed West article in the Telegraph from 2011 which no longer seems to be online Primarily this is guided lesson, wherein the student task is to summarised what they have learned and do some independant learning Either class room or online There once was a teachit resource for the two newsaper articles [ back in 2017] but you would need to source that yourself!
No Country For Old  Men  Film Study  new curriculum updated

No Country For Old Men Film Study new curriculum updated

(1)
UPDATED 20 AUGUST 2020 This is work book intended for A Level students ( film study) using the current curriculum for Eduqas (WJEC) board with the first exams 2019. ( I think it is impossible to teach spectatorship witihout acknowledging casting choices in light of#blacklives matter and the wake of #metoo) Update includes an extra page towards the end on more sound information The resource focuses on Spectatorship, but assumes that some spectatorship has already been taught. As this film has attaracted over 50!! PHD thesis - I have got this down to what I think is a manageable 25 pages ( just under 6,500 words) with some student interaction, but all the interaction comes back to what will be the key question focus for the 2019 - 2021 exams with this film - spectatorship. The key scenes I have targeted are the coin toss, and the motel scene post Moss death, with sections on camera, lighting, costumes, and of course the Coen’s and Deakin. There are many themes one could chose - I have included Nihilism, religion , ageing, law and order, as they seem the most obvious and will I hope write up well in the exams. I have not done much focus on the acting because I have assumed that any teacher would easily identify that its realism, and method with the main three! I have left this as a word document - so you can alter adapt and personalise as you wish - or not if you choose - but I do ask that you do not distrubute this online.

It covers the broad range of ideas with the film: context, history, aesthetics, auteur, cinematography, male gaze, gender bender. It has a suggested main essay question, short work tasks, and various stills from the film It is not per se a viewing log, but should be used before during and after viewing.

This is a 22 page workbook to accompany the film viewing of HURTLOCKER with the spcialist viewing information from the board included. Students found this very helpful for revision and consolidating the big ideas but this work does assume students have a grounding in the language of film It hass response sections but students should build from these writing prompt sections, the basic response to anticipated film questions

This is a collection of resources compiled over the past 15 years! They are a combination of teacher led, homework, group work, suiting lower to higher level groups. Some is very much stand alone lessons, and they are resources I dip in and out of yearly, updating and changing as cohorts bring new challenges or ideas. Macbeth has been my old friend since my A Level days, in another century - I hope you find something in here useful!

This is one of a two part approach to Rocks for GCSE - however please note that both this INTRODUCTION assume the teacher knows how to teach film!

This is a quick half lesson worksheet for AQA power and conflict Agard’s poem The worksheet reminds students to focus on key quotes - refresh analysis and to re-consider context. It is not a first wave introduction to the poem! The worksheet refers to a short youtube clip about ingrained racism ( Taikai Waititi’s parody 2 minutes long) to help students to connect to higher order ideas about humour being used to deflect serious issues
