Media Studies for GCSE, BTEC and A-Level

I have a degree in Media and it is most definitely my specialist area. A lot of media teachers seem to have made a switch from another subject which can really make teaching the subject a challenge at first. Hopefully my resources will help teachers just as much as students. I have given a few lessons for free so you can see what quality and detail you would be buying. It is cheaper to buy entire schemes, but individual lessons are also available.

This is one lesson taken from a full scheme! The entire scheme is available in my shop, as are the rest of the individual lessons. This lesson takes students through the ideas of Bandura and the Social cognitive/learning theory. Obviously this lesson focuses heavily on the role of the media in influencing audiences, however this may also be a useful lesson for psychology classes. - Individual Power-Point lesson with objectives, success criteria mapped to grades/levels, starter activity, main tasks with examples, plenary assessment, extension activities for further learning and extensive teachers notes The full scheme of Media Audiences includes enough content to last well over 20 hours in the classroom, including: - Individual Power-Point lessons such as this one - Comprehensive terminology list covering every element of the topic required by students - A variety of ‘in topic’ assessments to track progress and learning - Practical and written assessment activities for the end of the topic - A time saving and innovative ‘symbol marking’ feedback system - Home learning questions - Assessment mark sheet - Revision and practice lessons The full scheme covers the topic of Media Audiences as part of the theoretical framework as outlined by AQA in their latest specification, but can just as easily serve any exam board and a variety of courses. There are extensive references to the academic theories relevant to Media Audiences and detailed teachers notes on each slide to help your own understanding and delivery. These notes include possible answers and responses to the tasks set out in the lessons and help to make this as close to a “teach-by-numbers” experience as possible. All you need to do is read through the lessons beforehand to perfect your delivery. The full scheme is designed for A-level but is easily adapted to suit GCSE, BTEC and any other course. It is ideal for teachers who have little to no previous experience with the academic side of the media, as well as for those who require accurate and detailed lessons on the topics. “This is a massive time saver for any media teacher. All of the example texts are included so you don’t have to trudge around the internet looking for things. The theories are clearly and simply explained and the terminology list is a real bonus. I can’t tell you how many hours this has saved me, plus my students have begun to really engage with the lessons. I can’t thank you enough for this – well worth the money!” “The symbol marking feedback thing is great. I gave feedback to an entire class in 10 minutes within a lesson so didn’t have to take books home to mark. That alone was worththe money Thanks you so much”

WIDER CONTEXTS, ISSUES & DEBATES - OVERVIEW SCHEME  - Lesson Power-Points. Assessments. Terminology.

WIDER CONTEXTS, ISSUES & DEBATES - OVERVIEW SCHEME - Lesson Power-Points. Assessments. Terminology.

This scheme is designed to be delivered after students have covered the four Key Concepts as presented in the theoretical framework as outlined by the Media Studies A-Level specification from AQA (first teaching 2017). Building on their learning of key academic theories and principles in Media Language, Media Audiences, Media Industries and Media Representation, students start to delve deeper into some of the critical issues and debates that arise. Content also explores the wider political, social, historical and financial contexts of the media. There are 6 structured lessons (similar to those found in my other schemes of work) which introduce the topic and then take students through some of the key issues (the other key issues have been explored in previous lesson). The final 4 lessons offer questions and provide the opportunity for students to research, discuss and debate the issues for themselves. The included structured lessons are as follows: - Introduction - Censorship - Dumbing Down - Stereotyping - New and Digital Media - Wider Contexts (political, historical and financial) Students should also refer back to their prior learning from the four Key Concepts, specifically focussing on the issues raised with: - Moral Panics - Regulation - Colonialism - Globalisation - Post-modernism - Intertextuality and Hyper-Reality - Audience effect theories - Marxism All of which can be found in my other schemes of work or as individual lessons. Please comment and review my lessons as I am keen to improve them where possible. Please also feel free to contact me for further help or advice.
