What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5940)
"Comprehensive... it supports students across the full ability range both in lessons and in independent study... One major strength of the resource is the way that students and teachers can start at the level they feel most comfortable. If students have no knowledge of film promotion whatsoever, they can start from scratch. I also liked how the examples provided are contemporary - this is a good way of hooking less willing students... The resource allows students to consider the full range of processes behind the promotion and marketing of films. The key concepts of WJEC Media Studies are all addressed in detail... The resource is tailored to meet the requirements of the course. The sample exam tasks are particularly useful and will enable both teachers and students to be clear about the requirements of each AO."&Ndash; M Riches, Teacher of Media Studies & Independent Reviewer
"Thorough and informative... I like the fact that the student revision guide describes the exam from the student's point of view... The editing camera shots and angles resource I liked in particular, as it was very visual and there was a lot going on, but it was informative too... The creating a film poster resource starts from beginning of the process and flows well: purpose - features - analysis - ideas then how to plan and create... The sample answers and the tasks to enable the students to reflect on the grade it achieved and why works well. The mark scheme provides a guide for the students on what to discuss, therefore students can aim for a grade and study accordingly... A good range of example films are used, this enhances learning as one classroom will contain many different people with different tastes in film. All are appropriate for the age... matches the specification exceptionally well... very specific guidance for the exam... The revision round up pulls it all together and summarizes it, this will focus the student and make them feel armed with knowledge in preparation for the exam."– M Koleszko, Media Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"Very complete. It touches upon all the required skills necessary for the exam... The suggested sites and clips are excellent and I think my pupils, being quite diligent, will definitely use them... The student activities are excellent - they are comprehensive and are easily understood and focused in their particular tasks. The tasks are a time saving, which is exactly what is needed. The extension of tasks and information also provides good range for varying types of pupils... The resource follows the spec very well. It allows me to cherry pick depending on the individual needs of the pupils... the resources match the specification very closely. All of the skills and knowledge that is required for both coursework and the exam are built into the resource... I had great success last year with it, and plan on continuing to use it."– T Hutchinson, Head of Media Studies & Independent Reviewer
"An excellent resource that covers all aspects of the topic of film marketing. it is varied and diverse with a range of graphic organisers to aid in the learning of the pupil. It has a variety of good film examples and has chosen from all areas of the film industry. The industry section is particularly useful for both GCSE and A Level... The level of terminology and examples chosen is excellent. the use of tables and spider grams is slightly repetitive however, there is lots for the pupils to use to learn the key concepts of the industry... The use of previous Zigzag resources has seen vast improvements in my classes grades, due to the use of these comprehensive yet challenging resources... The range of films are good and also the trailers chosen accessible."– R Owens, Head of Media & Independent Reviewer
