Exploring the Media - Yes it certainly does!,
This review is from: Exploring the Media: 2nd Edition (Paperback)
As a new teacher of AS/A2 Media Studies the tricky concepts underpinning this subject have been made clearer and easier with the purchase of this book. Barbara Connell and team have provided a step-by-step guide on how to tackle some of the more complex issue of teaching AS/A2 media Studies. With a clear structure and excellent task based sections, the book is a map with which to steer a positive path towards successfully teaching students who have chosen this subject at A level.
The contents of the book have been well thought through and encourages teachers to undertake a critical approach to theoretical approaches. There is no doubt that 'Exploring the Media' avoids the mindless recitation of so many other 'media studies' books which seem to be bogged down in theory. Barbara Connell's book has enabled me to become critical and independent - a must for any media teacher.
