Praise for ZigZag's Annual Revision Guides...

It really helped me get my head around web-based drama - before this I had no idea idea where to start.

FANTASTIC! Buy it we do every year and it has really impacted on our teaching & results.

N Ayres, Head of Media Studies & Customer

Motivates and encourages students to revise independently.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5103)
'As a revision guide it is the most comprehensive and instantly user friendly (from both teacher and student point of view) that I have yet seen... I found it simply logical in who it was laid out. It seemed intuitive in its progression too... The resource puts an emphasis on individual learning - date of my exam is... I need to improve on... etc... It was simple and straightforward and not unneccessarily fussy... I could see this resource working in a school environment and would go a long way to demystifying the topic area for students... It meets the spec head on and allows for students/teachers to be secure that they have covered all areas required by the exam board and ensuring that no student should face the 'we haven't done this...' dilemma... There is no part of this revision pack that made me think 'I would do it another way...' ... This resource has clearly been aimed at 21st Century students and not the imaginary students of some academics' imaginations! Yes, and I would recommend it to fellow teachers at WJEC inset days.'G Scarfe, Media Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'I like the structure and variety of tasks... Sample exam questions are particularly useful.'M Fraser, Head of Media & Independent Reviewer
'A well detailed and interesting resource providing a variety of tasks that aid with revision and exam preparation... I particularly like the use of actual screen shots from crime dramas in the camera shot tasks... The detail and background history included in the extension booklet is thorough... The tasks set are varied with detailed instructions... Tasks are also easily adaptable to different programmes for added practice... Some of the tasks cover more in-depth theory that could help increase grades for students... really well. the tasks set cover all AOs in depth... I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing this resource, it will be a useful revision tool.'E Richardson, Media Studies Teacher & Independent Reviewer
'Extremely impressed... the research was very detailed and gave the pupils a sophisticated knowledge of the background to the genre.I thought that the activities were varied and appealling to pupils - the presentation was a particular strength. I particularly liked the industry research that I think will be particularly useful for higher ability pupils looking to tick the industry boxes on the exam paper. a great resource for both revision and as an introduction to the topic. Clearly a great deal of educational value - one of the best resouces I have reviewed... matches the specification perfectly. It provides background that allows the pupils to gain understanding of the industry issues.'S Morgans, Media and Film Studies Teacher, Examiner, Independent Reviewer
