Radio for Media Studies: Classroom Resources (paperback) – Clive Edwards

96pp   £27.50   ISBN: 1-903663-23-7   2004

Written primarily  for the Media teacher new to radio, Clive Edwards has produced a comprehensive selection of photocopiable resources to enable wider use of this neglected medium in the classroom. The Classroom Resources encourage the pupil to actively research all aspects of the medium – from scheduling to marketing a station – and role play as a station owner; and also give advice and suggestions for production tasks. There are sections on:

  • the conventions and language of radio
  • schedules and programme formats
  • representation
  • audiences and institutions
  • local and community radio
  • radio today
  • and an extensive glossary of terms associated with the medium.

Filled with photocopiable resource sheets, Radio for Media Studies: Classroom Resources is certain to be of practical use to non-specialist GCSE Media Studies teachers looking to better exploit this medium as a teaching tool.

Clive Edwards is a Principal Examiner for OCR A Level Media Studies. He has worked as Head of Media Studies at a large FE College in the West Midlands and also works in Local Community Radio, Hospital Broadcasting and Student Radio.
