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.

Interactive and Digital Mark Book - replace paper mark books at the back of planners

Interactive and Digital Mark Book - replace paper mark books at the back of planners

The ‘i-Mark Book’ is designed to replace the paper mark books at the back of teacher’s planners. This Excel Spreadsheet allows you to input the names, details and information of your students alongside up to 6 assessments per Year. You can then use the built-in tools to compare target grades to results, explore the success of significant groups and examine flight paths to influence your future lesson planning. The information displayed allows you to quickly and effectively summarise student’s achievement and progression which in turn can be used to decide on current academic progress of individual students. You can see which students are under-performing and detail this against specific classes, teachers or learning topics. You can quickly access who has under-performed and who still owes you assesssments. This information can be an ideal discussion point for line management meetings and can be used as evidence of student tracking as well as being a solid record of student’s achievements. The i-Mark Book also helps to discuss achievement at parents evenings. The i-Mark Book is designed to track one cohort and their progression through either one academic year, the entire of KS4 or through Sixth Form, but not different classes from multiple Year Groups. You can track the performance of up to 10 classes (up to 250 students). You may decide to setup one copy of this tool for each class, or it may be preferable to setup one copy for an entire Year Group. Once purchased you can distribute to all department and all members of staff for the whole school to use. This sale comes with a unique version for KS4, Sixth Form and for a single year group (for use with Year 7 and 8).

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.

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” Other schemes are available, or you can purchase individual lessons taken from each scheme.
