Intervention Time For Controlled Assessment 2
Congratulations to those people who finished their projects today - I am sure that you felt that a weight has been lifted and we can start to really build towards the examination. Next lesson most of you will still have time to complete your additional hours - make the most of them as for many of you it will be your last. The few people with time remaining will complete it after Christmas. Any photographs that need taking, either for the first time or as improvements, need to be taken as soon as possible to allow for time to edit and compile them into the magazine pages.
INTERVENTION TIME FOR CONTROLLED ASSESSMENT
We used today as an opportunity for those people who are owed some time for the controlled assessments to make up some of this time. Hopefully people made the most of the time - especially if you only have one hour left to complete everything. I will be working very closely with those people who are way below their target grade on the production and hope to see rapid improvements. If there is anything that you can do outside of school to prepare yourself for these extra sessions - such as taking much overdue photographs - then please ensure that it is done.
Cover work for 12th December 2013
Today we looked at applying the narrative theories that we have ben studying to a narrative by using a tension graph to plot the major events and the effect that it has on an audience. Remember that spikes in the graph can often be attributed to key moments in Todorov's Theory of Equilibrium such as the inciting incident or the resolution. Others may coincide with key aspects of Binary Oppositions or Propp's theory of Character Functions.
