Men, women, ethnic groups, sexuality, occupation, class, region, status, age groups — all have been ascribed sometimes misleading identities from the news media and other forms of entertainment. This resource provides concrete examples of the reasons behind bias, stereotyping and moral panics and makes links between these and phenomena and the audiences that consume them.

  • Great for essay preparation and for research & independent study
  • Detailed examples & historical comparisons
  • Special sections

Includes: Worksheets, Case Studies, Case Histories, Textual Analysis and Research Tasks.

Cross-referenced to current (up to summer 2009) and new (from September 2008) exam board specifications: AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC.
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2892)
"Extremely thorough in covering representation. The research tasks were useful for using with pupils in the classroom. Excellent prep for exam MS1... Clear definitions of key terms. An accessible way to introduce pupils to key concepts through research tasks and relevant case studies. The structure really breaks down different aspect of representation that pupils need to cover for the examiation... Definitely a useful resource for media at A level." — S Sylvester, Head of Media & Independent Reviewer
"Lots of interesting case studies... I liked the range of representation topics covered and suggested texts/links to use... Educationally this resource has high value, it references lots of issues around representation and links to relevant theories and debates... useful for a general introduction to the topic at A level as the specification requires students to focus on one particular representation and encourages them to take a more case-study style approach." — E Fraser, Lead Teacher of Media Studies & Independent Reviewer
"A very useful resource... It gives the students easy access to definitions, gives information in an accessible and readily available format." — S Jones, Media Studies Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"The resource is very detailed and includes a range of activities which should cater for students at different levels within an A-level group. Clearly organised and featuring a number of interesting resources which I was unfamiliar with... I particularly liked the race case study... it has given me some fresh ideas... "It makes different groups available as resources for representation for students to explore on their own after working through one or two areas in class - time is never available to do this in any depth." — J Malt, Media Studies Teacher and Head of English
"This is a good theory-based resource... A good range of studies and concepts, and links to media texts... This resource will enable learners to apply theory to their deconstructions of texts. It includes a broad range of theory and ideas." — M Birschel, Media Studies Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"Uses a good range of sources and a range of modern examples. Well researched... The author has done a very good job in compiling and explaining what can be quite confusing and daunting." — J Harris, Media Studies Teacher and Independent Reviewer
