Example text

So if you see yourself as an active student with a lively and independent approach to Media Studies but are hopelessly disorganised, then you need to maximise the opportunities presented by the strength you have identified and try to tackle the threat posed by the weakness of being disorganised. This might be simply a matter of teaming up with a fellow student who is organised but generally passive and seeing if you can’t cooperate with one another to make the best of your skills. With any luck your notes will be in a condition which is at least serviceable.

The use of facts and figures represents the institution as truthful and accurate; however the use of sensationalism – ‘fierce fighting under way’ – and dramatisation creates an entertainment rather than informative aspect to the news coverage. Even if you aren’t familiar with the text you should be able to see the dramatic difference in these two approaches. This example, like the first, concerns itself with representation but many other key concepts are drawn in, even if not explicitly flagged up. The effect is much more sophisticated and densely packed.

The section on realism should also help with your understanding of the Documentary topic. There are other AS textbooks that you should have a look at if you have time, although you will have to be selective in choosing the sections that will help. Have a quick check of the contents list and index to see how much of the topics you need they cover. One other book, if you have time to read more than one, that covers much of the territory is: J. Price and J. Nicholas (2003), AS Media Studies (Nelson Thornes).
