"A good overview of the specification... uses a range of current media examples to support student’s understanding... The lesson plans and worksheets are detailed...It is closely linked to the key words and details of the specification so that students can start to understand the different areas of the media that they have to study."

"Life saving! It has really helped to establish topics that have been covered in class... It can be used as starters or as homework and is very versatile." - H Parmenter, Head of Media and Independent Reviewer
'For anyone new to Media I think it could be a great guide for them to get started... Good range of activities for whole class, group and individual tasks... A good intro scheme with some good current examples to refer to... Good for introducing the basics and key terminology. A good whistle stop intro.' – L Bird, Subject Leader & Independent Reviewer
‘A self-contained, short scheme of work that will give Media Studies students an excellent starting point for the course. The 6, hour-long lessons are logically sequenced, but can also be used as stand-alone lessons. Very clearly structured and informative, detailed and very well planned. Guidance given is thorough and detailed. I particularly liked the suggestions for homework tasks to complement each lesson. Matches and interprets the specification very well. Consideration has been given to some centres’ lack of access to computers and the internet, and many of the tasks can be done on paper or in books. I would definitely purchase this resource as soon as possible; it is extremely thorough and saves teachers a huge amount of time.’ – S Backhouse, Media Teacher and Independent Reviewer
