Assignment 1 Introduction to the Media

Students in Media Studies at Dunluce begin by developing a critical approach to media texts.  What this means is that they go beyond looking/reading/listening for enjoyment and begin to analyse what they are seeing.  This is Assignment 1 of the AQA GCSE course.

Our students look at media texts very closely to identify key features, consider audience appeal and consider the messages that are being given.  Then they get their chance to put this knowledge to the test by creating effective texts themselves.  This gallery includes some of the work our pupils have produced recently.
