What do teachers say about this resource? (10289)

A very comprehensive resource covering all the relevant framework concepts. There are also a good range of theories noted with some application to the CSPs. The presentation and brevity are a bonus for revision purposes. This resource could enhance learning as it is very visual and uses appropriate terms; some could be printed poster-size and displayed during the revision term prior to examinations. This would help remind students of key points and theories that they need to recall for the examination.

A great balance of content and visual style. Having both CSPs on the page at once is really useful as it makes it easier to compare and contrast the texts. Splitting it into framework areas is also effective as it helps to clarify the themes and remember to apply the correct theories to the corresponding concept topics. The layout is easy to follow and the bullet points help provide key information in a concise and succinct manner. The headings are useful in drawing learners to familiar areas from their previous knowledge and aids their route through the map helpfully. I particularly liked the way definitions were give for each term (both theory and key vocabulary) and then followed up with references from the text. There was also a decent range of theorists applied for each case study which will help students to cement their understanding and make excellent links between the media text and the relevant theory. ‘Topic on a Page’ is an excellent end of unit or final term of year 13 revision resource. It provides a comprehensive summary of all the key content taught in the course and a great overview of the paired texts. It can be used as a foundation for creating other revision resources – students can refer to it to help them quiz a study-buddy or construct flashcards for independent use. It is similar to knowledge organisers students are perhaps already familiar with, but the layout is more visual with the use of graphics and alternative headings which help them to think of the texts by comparing them on one page as opposed to separately. There are also some additional ideas provided that perhaps classroom teachers have not covered so this tool helps to provide alternative information for learners.
