Very useful... As a mixed ability subject it is useful to make the students feel more cohesive as a class and they are able to develop their knowledge regardless of their level... It takes the thought out of homework setting and can be used by non-specialists as well... ZigZag are invaluable – I genuinely don’t know how we would have taught the course otherwise.

'Very well structured and complements the previously published Sitcoms Teaching Pack. It matches the specification well, and allows learners an element of choice, and to learn at their own pace. The Scheme of Work grid was very useful as it was clear and easy to see the different tasks at a glance, allowing teachers to pick and choose a task by theme, rather than having to follow them in a rigid order. I especially liked the use of icons to allow students (and teachers) to easily identify the differentiated tasks.

'I liked it. Simple and straightforward, really easy to navigate through and covers much/most of what is required by the exam board... It is good to be able to have a pack of ready made homeworks that can be sent home with students... The scheme covers a good range of the required angles necessary for thorough study of the two set texts. Key concepts LIAR are all covered to a good standard. The use of exam style questions throughout the scheme is great to show students what to expect and practice writing appropriate answers... I definitely like the idea of differentiated tasks for different levels of challenge also.

A good selection of homework tasks that would benefit teachers and students... The resource offers a revison-esque approach to repeat and remind students of the key media concepts with a variety of different tasks, fill the blanks, match the words etc. Good for differentation. Good use of set texts from the exam board along with other texts that serve as the "unseen texts" in the exam so good practice there for the students. The course is HUGE in terms of set texts and different media covered, tasks like these are useful to revise from and assess student's knowledge and understanding.

M Toogood, HoD & Peer Reviewer

A clear overview with outlined tasks that demonstrate a progression in developing students knowledge and understanding. I liked that there are a range of activities using set texts and wider texts. Allows teachers to check for prior understanding or misconceptions of key terms and concepts. The tasks encourage students to extend their prior learning and apply their understanding to wider texts. It also gives them some exam practice time. The answers included could be given to teachers new to the subject, or allow students to peer/self assess.

This homework pack is differentiated well, allowing for a range of learners to access it and progress from it. A nice variety of different types of activities, all leading up to a writing task which is good for exam preparation. Excellent for teachers to either set as homework or to be used in class as lesson activities.
