ALL DIRECTLY RELEVANT TO Newspapers and Radio News

The exam is at the centre of it and all work is relevant and yet interesting… Opportunities for peer assessment are well-directed and clear… each type of question is dealt with thoroughly… Enables pupils to know what the examiner is looking for and how to get the marks. The exploration of how meaning is created through construction and editing gives the kids an A* approach to textual analysis… The Web-Based Drama work is excellent… every conceivable relevant theory is there to give them the edge in the exam… As an educational resource I wouldn’t want to be without it!
I could hand it to an NQT and be sure they were following the curriculum to the letter. As a classroom teacher, it would give me everything I need to teach this unit thoroughly. What a wonderful resource!!! – K Chanter, Head of Media Studies & Independent Reviewer (previous edition)



We loved the teaching pack and the online revision that I purchased earlier in the year for my son’s Media Studies. His grade went from a D in the mocks to a high B in the June exam. I wish we had found your resources earlier! – H Thomas, Parent & Customer (2013 edition)
