A gentle introduction to theory for teachers and students of ‘A’ Level Media Studies, revised and updated for the new AQA A2 topic of Media Identities.
(It could also be used for other subjects that use theory, such as English and Sociology.)
This is not a definitive source, nor a “reader”, with chapters extracted from larger works. The best way to think of it is as a series of lesson notes, accompanied by links to supporting slide shows. Teachers reading this might come up with lesson activities designed to illustrate the points; students reading it might treat it as a revision source, or a platform for further independent research.
