Media Studies
KS4 >

A set of engaging interactive resources to support the teaching of the Music topic in the new GCSE Media Studies specification. The introductory activities can be used to develop learners' understanding of the topic, and there is a detailed focus on Social Media and its importance to the music industry. The classroom activities relate to the different areas of the theoretical framework, with a clear emphasis on textual analysis. There are resources, including a detailed factsheet, for each of the set music videos from the 1980s and early 1990s. The resource also provides extensive activities related to Katy Perry which can be adapted for use with the other set contemporary artists.
