The Media Teacher’s Handbook is an indispensible guide for all teachers, both specialist and non-specialist, delivering Media Studies and media education in secondary schools and colleges. It is the first text to draw together the three key elements of secondary sector teaching in relation to media study - the theoretical, the practical and the professional - in order to support media teachers throughout their careers: Section One: Contexts explores the history of, rationale for, and justification of studying the media from 1900 to the present day, and considers the tensions implicit in the subject caused by opposing views of culture. Section Two: Curriculum comprises seven chapters that focus on studying the media from Key Stages 3 and 4 in English, through GCSE and A Level Media Studies. It also explores approaches to teaching the Creative and Media Diploma, media and citizenship, and practical media production. Section Three: Career Development is designed to support those establishing and leading Media Studies departments and those who are charged with the initial preparation and professional development of teachers. Written by experts involved in the teaching, training and examination of Media Studies, this one-stop resource is packed with illustrative case studies and exemplar schemes of work which can be easily adapted for your own needs. Suggested Reading and Recommended Resources sections at the end of each chapter list additional books, films, DVDs, groups, agencies, organisations, contact details, websites and other materials which will support your teaching even further. The Media Teacher’s Handbook is an essential guide to the theory, pedagogy, and practice of media education that will enable you to teach your subject expertly and with confidence.

Combining the creative perspectives of filmmakers with more analytic academic methods, this study invites film students to take an active approach in learning to understand how audiovisual language is used to create meaning in films. While the main focus is on the concept of film language, case study readings of The Warrior (2002) and Traffic (2001) place these films in their institutional contexts to demonstrate the multifaceted nature of how meaning is created. This study gives particular emphasis to understanding cinemaphotography, editing, music, and setting. Students are encouraged to reflect on their own responses and develop reading skills through a range of online classroom activities that demonstrate how audience interaction works to create meaning in film. Technical terms and techniques are explained in an extensive glossary and in special explanatory sections illustrated by a range of films.
