Starter/Loop Activity (5 minutes)

Slide 2 Task 1A Pupils asked to consider the question from the Lesson Resource: The i weekend?

Prepare the Learning (10 Minutes)

Share the objectives. Remind students of the objectives we are working towards meeting, and that this unit is designed to help them prepare for the two papers of the examination but specifically for the construction of their NEA portfolio.

Slides 3-10 Review the structure of the Eduqas Advanced NEA and the requirement to Research and Construct media products prescribed by the examination board. Be clear that this work builds upon all they will have learned and the understanding they will have acquired and honed in Edusites Core Media Framework Units and Eduqas Advanced Level Set Products Units as well as the skills they will acquire during the rest of this course. They must see the skills they acquire as transferable to the work here.

Construct the Learning (20 Minutes)

Slides 11-22 These slides cover the Eduqas Advanced Level NEA structure and how the NEA 2019 Briefs fit into this – the response to the brief required for completing the NEA tasks and the type of responses required. The key point here is to remind them that the tasks involve understanding of the Core Media Framework, elements of which we have already begun to cover in Edusites Core Media Framework Units and the Eduqas specific units. This NEA work covers 3 terms and the detail is expected to be shown in the final portfolio. The Eduqas briefs are outlined (Slides 23-24) with platforms to be selected. Point out that the Statement of Aims is vital. Research will be key in accessing the higher grades.
