Year 11 Media Studies (11MES)
Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Uy
Media Studies is a subject that encourages students to engage critically with the world of media that they are surrounded by. Students will analyse the Sitcom genre and its relationship with audiences and Media Theory. They will also analyse Music Videos, then plan and create their own music video in groups, an exciting part of the internal assessment. Students also research into how the media represents a current event from 2018. This course is suited for learners who are excited about asking questions and thinking critically and/or have an interest in careers in media production, marketing, journalism and any other job based around analysis and production.
This subject is academic and requires students to write their analysis in essay format. While there is a large practical component to the course the literacy and reading and writing credits come from the external exams where students write coherently and perceptively to form an argument and express their ideas.
