Duration
2-4pm

Teaching the GCSE Media set texts can sometimes feel laborious, especially when one of the joys of being a Media teacher is sourcing relevant unseen texts to illustrate a concept or start a classroom discussion. In this online session, we will explore ways to make some of the more challenging set texts on the EDUQAS specification more engaging and accessible for your students, for example, Quality Street, The Sun, The Guardian and The Archers. As well as discussing specific set texts, we will offer a range of practical approaches you can adapt to teach a range of media forms. 

Online, via Zoom. Details of how to join will be sent before the session.
