Thursday, 7 January 2016


We need to start studying for the exam units and we will start with some key media concepts and the theories around them.

We will start with Audience Theory. To that purpose and because we are behind, please watch the following videos before next Thursday and make some brief notes about each one. 

You can do that on paper in your folders. 

Bring your folders from now on to every lesson.
