ALL DIRECTLY RELEVANT TO TV & WEB-BASED DRAMA

The exam is at the centre of it and all work is relevant and yet interesting... Opportunities for peer assessment are well-directed and clear… each type of question is dealt with thoroughly... Enables pupils to know what the examiner is looking for and how to get the marks. The exploration of how meaning is created through construction and editing gives the kids an A* approach to textual analysis... The Web-Based Drama work is excellent… every conceivable relevant theory is there to give them the edge in the exam... As an educational resource I wouldn't want to be without it!

I could hand it to an NQT and be sure they were following the curriculum to the letter. As a classroom teacher, it would give me everything I need to teach this unit thoroughly. What a wonderful resource!!!

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4895)
"We loved the teaching pack and the online revision that I purchased earlier in the year for my son's Media Studies. His grade went from a D in the mocks to a high B in the June exam. I wish we had found your resources earlier!"
'It was extremely organised, clear and well structured. It was clearly created to slowly introduce pupils to the topic and becomes increasingly challenging as the lessons develop which seems the most logical and worthwhile way of teaching this unit... a very good resource which clearly has a good grasp of the exam specification and has resources and tasks suited to teaching pupils how to tackle their exam... the way the lessons develop over the course of the 28 lessons means that pupils have the opportunity to build their knowledge with confidence (they will not be overwhelmed with terms/theory etc..) whilst also challenging and stretching themselves as they develop to study more complex theories and terms... it fulfils all of the relevant criteria as laid out by the exam board in their specification for the summer 2013 examination... keeps OFSTED guidelines about teaching and learning in mind. There are opportunities for independent, paired and group learning as wells as chances for pupils to self and peer assess their work. These opportunities are useful and work to enhance how pupils will approach exam topics and are not just there to tick boxes which can sometimes happen with these sorts of activities.'E Iles, Media Studies and English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'This is amazing, whoever has put this together really knows their stuff. No area has been left uncovered and they have taken a sensible, pupil-centred approach to putting this together is such a way as to ensure success. The exam is at the centre of it and all work is relevant and yet interesting... the lesson plans are accessible to all... The initial familiarisation tasks are excellent and allow pupils to engage with the spec... The scheduling and ratings work is a very interesting way of getting the kids to work out why things are on when they are, and gets them to figure it out for themselves rather than just telling them how the scheduling works.The teacher sheets are fabulous! This way I can be sure and confident in my own planning that the information all correlates and having it laid out as it is means no cross-referencing needed... the exploration of how meaning is created through construction and editing gives the kids an A* approach to textual analysis... Opportunities for peer assessment are excellent as they are well-directed and clear to the pupils.The work on genre theory is full and really good - its ever so hard to find decent quality work on genre theory so this is a real strength of the guide... I like the way that the document builds up to a full drama analysis, after having taught the various areas first, it feels well-directed and structured... The narrative structures are brilliant - they go further than the typical Todorov and Propp of other study guides. The representation work is fabulous and the use of images will be brilliant to pin down the students understanding. Organisations is dealt with thoroughly and provides a really useful way in - with accurate and up to date information to guide pupils through it practically. Regulation is also dealt with thoroughly and in a de-jargonised way so that the kids can actually understand it.The opportunities for exam practise towards the end are brilliant. They ensure that each type of question is dealt with thoroughly... The audience theory work is really thorough and sensibly comes towards the end of the teaching. The approach of definition and the practical exploration is consistent with the approach throughout which really works. I really like the work on brand image as its not something I would have really focused on as a teacher, but after looking at this I can really see the value in it and how the answers can be enhanced from teaching this. The web based drama work is excellent and the analysis of images with accurate terminology will be well-received by pupils.The Powerpoint which comes with it is a fabulous addition to the resource and the way that it is laid out is coherent and clear.This resource ensures that the pupils are able to learn the theories and then practice for themselves. They can not only learn the basic theories and terminology but there is every conceivable relevant theory here to give them the edge in the exam and controlled assessments that they take. As an educational resource I wouldn't want to be without it!It ties in beautifully with the revision guide too! Matches WJEC perfectly. It is geared for the exam entirely and enables pupils to know what the examiner is looking for and how to get the marks. Use of the markscheme directly is fabulous. I do think that the use of the key theories and terminology which is such a big part of the WJEC spec is useful.This really is something! I could hand it to an NQT and be sure they were following the curriculum to the letter and not need to worry. As a classroom teacher, it would give me everything I need to teach this unit thoroughly. What a wonderful resource!!!'K Chanter, Head of Media Studies and Independent Reviewer
'A very well thought out scheme of work that covers the specification well. it has a good variety of tasks that are differentiated throughout... I particularly liked the table of links detailing you tube clips for video sequences used and the precise timings given. also the clear numbering of the resources as easily identifiable. The accompanying PowerPoint is useful as well... I particularly like the self and peer assessment worksheets as a target setting and progression monitor along with the initial target setting (worksheet 1.5)... The teacher sheets are especially useful for new teachers, or for cover lessons providing clear notes and examples of how the students should be completing handouts and what to focus on... The statement on some of the handouts explaining that the students can make notes after the 1st viewing is positive habit forming and prepares them for the exam... the worksheets all have very clear explanations of the task on them... clearly interprets the specification and is easily amendable to be used to teach the topic through other exam boards... I really like how the scheme of work has been structured and segmented to suit the varying questions of the exam, helping to prepare students from the beginning of the unit.'E Richardson, Media Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'It challenges the ability range, and its planning, whilst linear, can easily be tailored to suit teaching styles... The many concepts are intoduced in a layered fashion, enabling a throrough consolidation of learning... The convergence tasks at the end of the resource are excellent.'M Turiansky, Media Studies Teacher, Examiner and Independent Reviewer
