Answer the question first with your opinion

Then write why in the following paragraphs. e.g theories, media language, context, reception, aims, audience etc

The conclude

I would say in terms of length I would say open opening and concluding paragraph and then maybe 6/8 + paragraphs.

This is what I would do xx

Depends on the text and what the study areas are but you have

reception theory- how audiences consume texts- active or passive- active responds to a text, either perceives it in a different way to producers or does something after text, e.g talks about it, passive just consumes and that is it.

readings- How audiences like a text- preferred, negotiated and oppositional

Uses and gratifications- personal identification, surveillance, escapism/entertainment and social interaction- how audiences use a text

Propps character functions- hero, villain, dispatcher- all characters will have some kind of role

binary opposition- Happy vs sad, pretty vs ugly

Toddrov's narrative theory- how a text runs. like begging, middle and end- equilibrium, disruption, new equilibrium

Rubicans 4 cs-catergorise audience e.g strugglers, aspirers, succeeders ect and this can be use to how an audience responds to a text

hypodermic syringe theory- Media is a plug in drug and can be harmful

Barthes Action and Enigma codes- Certain things texts may do to create action or mystery

Barthes semotic theory- denotation+connotation

Media language is basically everything that goes into a text- such a props, camera angles, lighting, mis-en-sence ( the background), costume, make up ect

reception- An example would be Zoella- what are peoples opinions about her ( link this to readings) is she approved by parents? I Daniel Blake could be awards won, newspaper reviews.

Aims- like what has the text set out to do, e.g I, Daniel Blake sets out to generate awareness of how the government treats people who need benefits. Dr strange aims to make a lot of money, Galaxy aims to make people want Galaxy

That's alright. glad I can help, I feel your struggle!

How are you feeling about the CSPs?


Dreading Monday!

Good luck xoxo

Tatler and reveal

Propp- Georgina bevan as the hero/ dispathor of the new posh( princess) Sloanes villain ect - Katie Villain, Cheryl hero
Todrov- current posh- the new posh introduced, reader finds out about the new posh, Lauren single, then meets guy in jail, now telling us
binary opposition- sloanes vs new posh, Michelle and mark relationship vs Lauren's relationship
Male gaze- seeing women in a sexualised way- clothes fell off- Reveal- Lauren taking about sex life
Barthes engima codes- what is the new posh, secret meetings between Katie and Pete

One direction/ Arctic Monkeys

Uses and Gratifications

remember it as pies
P-personal identification-Arctic Monkeys have casual costume and music references whihc the fans will be like they are like me. 1D looking back on memories audience may be able reomise on those times as well as them
I- information/Surveillance- History- helps fans to find out 1D's current status- e.g break up, Arctic monekys online presence helps fans keep up to date with the band

Readings- oppistional, negotiated and preferred applies to both texts

Hope this helps xx
E-escapism/entertainment - To listen to music and watch the music video (both)
S-social interaction- being in a community of a fandom and bonding with other members of that fandom ( both)

Hi,

I personally picked it up this year ( I am on a one year GCSE course) and it is intense but I love it. With two or Three years you will be an expert!

Some of it is a bit can go on a bit but overall I find learning about the theories, contexts and how texts are constructed really interesting. I am taking it next year for A-level over Drama( my fav subject in school).

It isn't an easy 9 like people say, it is hard work but really worth it.

Plus the coursework is fun !

hope that is helpful xoxo

hi does anyone know how to link theories into Radio one and Apple Beats
Readings-

oppistional- Doesn't like the music played or the DJ - therefore will listen to another product.

negotiated- in the case of radio 1 could mean questioning the difference between his pirate radio presenting and radio 1 presenting or the lack of popular music or something to do with the music also the lack of diverse representation . Apple Beats 1 would be I like Julie but not the music or vise versa, Tbh this would be the reading of a more casual listener who will listen to it if it is on or because it is the only option

preferred- Likes all the music played and the presenters- no questions are asked such as representation or content in the case of radio 1. Apple beats radio reading might be focused on representation and genre specific music but positively, wow a black woman or I love the hip hop music played on here it isn't too mainstream.

Uses and gratifications-

Personal identification- DJ's interests and image/personas
Information/surveillance - Music updates e.g charts or new music
Escapism/entertainment - listening to music, plus commentary
Social interaction - writing/texting/tweeting in ect

The higerarchy of needs ( self actualization/self-esteem) as you can identify/ see positive traits in the presenters- more Apple beats one as has more vaiered representation but still could apply to radio 1- I wouldn't worry about this one too much unless it is a 20 marker as there is plenty to say on audiences and industry.

post modernism- Beats radio 1 ( the actual act of listening to radio online is post modern) This has a lot to do with Julie as she has a post modern image- mixing gender norms such as her more feminine language such as fleek/cute but her gender non conforming costume and short hair. The music as this is more vaired such as your Ed's and Gagas but also your up and coming artists.

Hope this helps xx
