Helpful and accessible, another useful companion text and bit of recommended reading I used for my media students at the time. Some of the information was at times contradictory to WJEC advice or confusing to general understandings of the specification - but Barbara is a respected member of the WJEC Media teaching/examining community and I am sure that these issues arose more from the new specification and the ambiguity in some of its wording - which wasn't always easy to translate in to guidance material (I imagine).

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.

Once I had read this book I became enlightened and restablished my faith in Centipedes,and other multi legged creatures I am sure my faith will endure well past midnight and may stretch as far as Spring.
