Revision (KS5): Media Studies
USEFUL REVISION WEBSITES
TOP TIPS (SUBJECT SPECIFIC REVISION TIPS)
Use a broad range of media texts across all 3 platforms (Print, E-media, Broadcast), to develop a sound understanding of the technical, symbolic and written codes and conventions used in the construction of each text.
You need to develop a sound understanding of the 4 key concepts:
– Media Form
– Media Audience
– Media Representations
– Media Institutions
Watching tv, listening to the radio, reading a magazine, newspaper or interacting on a website – be analytical and think about how these texts have been constructed to appeal to you specifically as an audience – do these texts use stereotypes positively or negatively and who owns or produces the media?
