Year 10 Media

10MED
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms Maisiri

Students will be offered a range of assessments that have been scaffolded from Level One Media Studies. This will prepare them for Level One and build their Media literacy and production skills.

Students will explore music videos and identify, describe and analyse two elements from two or more music videos. This assessment is similar to ENG film study but a different media product will be studied to give them variety. This may be linked to their genre study but students will be given an option of film.

Students will learn how to write a script from a creative story. They can use their creative writing from English or base it on a well-known story such as fables, myths and legends. They will use WriterDuet and learn about script writing conventions. This will prepare them for Level one- three media studies as students are required to plan and design films.

Students will create a media product. This may be a travel instagram template that is compiled of green screen edited images or an advertisement. Students will need to use a camera to shoot with and computer software to edit their images
