Unit 3 Media Studies Case Study

Discussion in 'Media studies' started by Rach567, Aug 25, 2011.

  1. Hi all,
    I'm looking for some help. I am new to teaching media studies and am struggling with how to support students when putting together their own case studies. I was wondering if there was anything out there would act as a template/guide for case studies so that I can model to begin with and then ask the students to independently complete their own?
    Would really appeciate any help,
    Thanks in advance,
    Rach :)

    I'm assuming you are doing A2 Media with AQA, and are looking for ideas regarding Representation and New Media Technology? If so, then have you had a look at mediaedu.co.uk? They have a number of resources on both topic areas specifically designed for MEST 3, (as well as a range of other resources for the AQA A level course, among others).
    I hope this helps.
  3. Thank-you. You are right...it's AQA MEST 3 and 4. Completely new to me. Have just subscribed to the site. Really helpful.

  4. Is it best to start with MEST4 or 3 first?

    Glad you've found mediaedu helpful. An article on achieving good grades at A/S went up a couple of weeks ago, and the A2 one went up today.
    We run MEST 3 and 4 side-by-side. It's difficult for them to get going on their coursework without some teaching on some of the A2 theories. We do the coursework written element first, with a deadline of end of the Christmas term, and then a deadline for the practical of February half term (which leaves the equipment free for our A/S students' deadline of Easter). If you pop an email address I'll send a breakdown of our route through if you want.
    Hope this helps.
  6. Thank you so so much. I really appreciate your help. My email is rachaelward310@hotmail.com

    Sorry to be cheeky, but could I please have an outline of your MEST 4 aswell? I am teaching A2 for the first time and unsure of how to start them off.
