Synopsis

WJEC GCSE Film Studies Study and Revision Guide by Jackie Newman, Dave Fairclough, Jackie, APF Dearden

Matching the revised specification first examined in June 2013, it is designed to support WJEC GCSE Film Studies, and is endorsed by WJEC. It provides complete study support by combining the qualities of a detailed textbook with features more commonly found in a revision guide. // Highly illustrated examples of films taught for Paper 1 and Paper 2 help to reinforce understanding of the micro and macro elements of film language. // Key terms are clearly defined throughout and in a glossary. // Quickfire questions check students' understanding as they progress. // Classroom activities help reinforce key points of learning. // Detailed guidance is provided on the film exploration and production required for the Controlled Assessment. // Revision chapters focus students on preparing for Papers 1 and 2 with student examples and commentaries and plenty of advice on the appropriate use of theory and key terminology. // Exam tips throughout help students improve their exam technique. // The whole book offers an effective model for teaching the course in an integrated way.
