This unit was designed for year 9 students to complete in English lessons before deciding on options subjects. It covers the key aspects of Eduqas GCSE Film Studies - analysing mise en scene, storyboarding, screenplay writing and evaluations. All resources and lesson plans are included. The Superhero film genre is used as focus.
This bundle includes all lessons, fully resourced for the new Eduqas GCSE Media Studies TV Sitcoms option for component 2a. This is planned over 10 weeks, with 20 lessons (several double lessons included which may need tweaking for single lessons) to cover all key information for both texts. Mock questions are also built into the unit.
Please note: these are planned on smart software. I have converted all to powerpoint but often the export changes the format and things may need adjusting - if you plan on using the powerpoints to teach, please check these before delivery.
Explores the entire pilot of Friends in relation to four key media theories. Pupils marketplace and share knowledge and understanding.
Pleas subscribe for updates - more lessons to be added as and when planned.
Designed on Microsoft excel, this tracking document will help you keep track of the progress of your KS4 students, with specific columns for each of the questions on the exam paper. The sheet will auto calculate INDIVIDUAL GRADES FOR EACH QUESTION, total marks on the paper as well as total overall marks, which then feed into an overall grade based on the boundaries released by AQA this week (Aug 2017). Furthermore, to account to boundary movement next year, I have added a buffer column which shows you the grade that would be achieved should the boundary increase by 10% on this year’s grade. 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. For each question there is also an intervention column so you can easily add information as to what intervention has been given to underachieving pupils for certain questions.
The literature version of this sheet has too been added in my shop.
THE LINK TO THE 2018 VERSION OF THIS IS BELOW:
Here’s a booklet I’ve made for students to revise everything taught for components 1 and 2 of the new GCSE Media Studies specification for Eduqas. The booklet does not cover information itself, but rather a full list of possible exam questions for each area taken from wording in the specification, as well as some unseen comparison texts for each set text for component 1 section A. This would be helpful for students revising alongside the factsheets provided by the exam board and notes from class for component 2. This would also be invaluable for anyone wanting to make up their own set of full mock papers as there are many different variations available from the questions in here.
There is an editable version for download as well as pdf for anyone who covered different texts for component 2 (It Crowd, Friends, Michael Jackson, Pharrell and Taylor Swift were the ones I taught).
Hope this proves to be useful.
Includes two booklets - one for component 1 and one for component 2. In this I have broken down a variety of possible questions for each set text (opted for LOM and TB, Zoella and Attitude, Huck and WR for C2, Beyonce for C1).
This could be used as a revision tool for students - colour coding their confidence in answering each and working on the questions they deem red or amber. Alternatively this could be very useful in creating mock papers using a combination of questions from the two booklets.

Designed on Microsoft excel, this tracking document will help you keep track of the progress of your KS4 students, with specific columns for each of the questions on the exam paper. The sheet will auto calculate INDIVIDUAL GRADES FOR EACH QUESTION, total marks on the paper as well as total overall marks, which then feed into an overall grade based on the boundaries released by AQA (JUNE 2018 OFFICIAL BOUNDARIES). Furthermore, to account for boundary movement next year, I have added a buffer column which shows you the grade that would be achieved should the boundary increase by 5 marks on this year’s grade, as it did last year for some grades.
All you need to do is add the pupil information from SIMS/your marksheet and the marks they have achieved for each question and the rest is done for you.
LOOKING FOR INDIVIDUAL GRADES FOR EACH SECTION OF THE EXAM/COURSEWORK SO YOU KNOW MORE SPECIFICALLY WHERE TO FOCUS YOUR INTERVENTIONS? I ALSO HAVE A TRACKER AVAILABLE WHICH PROVIDES YOU WITH THIS FOR ONLY £2 MORE. PLEASE SEARCH FOR ‘FULL BREAKDOWN EDUQAS 9-1 TRACKING’
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.
The sheet will auto calculate total marks on each unit - 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!

As part of my suggested Long Term Plan for the GCSE Film Studies (9-1) course, i will be beginning the course with an introductory unit in which we explore many of the key elements of the course linked to the horror genre. This will then feed into component 3 in which students can produce an extract from a horror film. By including an introductory unit, students will be given opportunity to explore all of the key areas before being shown any of the set texts and so enable a deeper level of analysis when the films themselves are explored. Plus, the component 3 piece will be strengthened with a thorough exploration of the genre, leaving a greater amount of time to focus on planning, filming and editing the coursework itself.
This is lesson one from the scheme of work. Lessons are being planned daily throughout the summer break so please return for updates.
Accompanying Long Term Plan and Medium Term plan available through my shop.
Any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
PLEASE NOTE, BACKGROUNDS ON ALL TEXT BOXES SHOULD BE FINE - PREVIEW ON TES DOESN’T MATCH ACTUAL POWERPOINT.
A scheme of work I planned and resourced, including powerpoints and accompanying pdfs and word documents (several pdfs are taken from eduqas and used as part of lessons). Includes MTP.
Guides students through the entire C3 brief including screenplay, shooting script and evaluation over 25 lessons.
Please buy BUNDLE for same price for all lessons (too many to upload as one listing)
This will enable you to track the progress of your students throughout the year with columns for each unit studied - two assessments per film, as well as coursework and mock exam points. This particular tracker follows teaching of component 2 in year 1 and component 2 in year two. It can easily be adjusted to meet other needs though,
All calculations are based on actual grade boundaries from the June 2019 results.
Feedback always appreciated.
Similar trackers also available for Media Studies, English Language and English Literature.
