Note: By Sept 2022 there will be new updated editions available with new content for assessment from 2024 onwards

Fun and informal articles engage students and build in-depth knowledge of each set product in manageable chunks

Actively engage students with the Component 2 set products through a range of entertaining yet academic magazine-style articles. Explore different topics across the media frameworks and theories while getting to know each of the set products in depth.

A very useful resource for students to have a broader and more in depth understanding of the set products and their contexts

Structure offers the perfect balance between guided classwork and independent study for a flipped classroom / seminar-style approach:

  • What should I know?
    Students are introduced to key background information to maximise understanding.
  • Getting to know…
    Up to 20 articles on a variety of topics – including niche aspects not covered by the textbook – build knowledge. Each article includes a variety of discussion tasks to engage and challenge students.
  • Show what you know!
    5–10 essay questions with indicative content prepare students for the exam.

What do teachers say about this resource? (10179)

This is a fantastic resource which aids the understanding of this topic. I can envision some of this to be used as stretch and challenge for the most able students. I particularly like discussion questions at the end of each section - this could formulate a really nice 'seminar' like discussion with an able cohort. The keyword boxes are really nice addition and overall, the whole resource is structured really well with the learner in mind. The resource is structured in such a way that ensures learners can work through it in their own pace as a pre-reading activity or to consolidate learning from the classroom.

A very useful resource for students to have a broader and more in depth understanding of these two set products and their contexts. The structure seems particularly useful as I can pick and choose the articles that I would like the students to read and engage with. There are an excellent range of topics covered in lots of detail. I like the thought-provoking discussion questions at the end of each article as they can be particularly useful for in class discussion and can be set as homework tasks to recap knowledge. There is seemingly a lack of resources provided by the exam board for the Component 2 products and textbooks provide the information segmented across the books, so I feel that this will be valuable for teachers and students aiming to develop a broader understanding and have all the contextual information required in a number of easy to access, focused articles.
