  1. 1. What is disability and what different types of disability are there?

  3. 3. In pairs: How would you represent them using the micro elements? Physically disabled: Mentally disabled:
  4. 4. Are these typical representations? Why?
  5. 5. Coming Down The Mountain BBC TV DRAMA Choose at least two micro elements Write detailed notes on both Be prepared to write at least 2 PEEs for each David and Ben are two teenage brothers
  6. 6. Write a PEE for your chosen micro elements: Point: Your area of representation E.g. A typical representation of disability is shown through the diegetic dialogue of Ben’s character. Evidence: Your micro element E.g. In response to David’s comment about feeling down, Ben says ‘I get that sometimes but then I eat a bag of crisps and watch Star Wars and then it goes away.’ Explain: Linking the two E.g. This simplistic language used by Ben implies that he doesn’t share the complex emotional turmoil of his brother, and therefore conforms to the stereotypical view of a mentally disabled person being less intelligent than an able-minded person.
  7. 7. SWAP answers Is there point accurate? Have they followed the PEE structure? Have they used lots of media terms? Have they linked their answer to the area of representation? Have they written clearly? Give one mark for each – Will you score 5/5???
  8. 8. Myths of Disability A person with a disability is sick, or has something wrong with them.  People with disabilities have a poor quality of life. People with disabilities are inspirational, brave, and courageous for living successfully with their disability. People with disability always need expensive and high-tech assistive devices or services. People with severe disabilities need to live in nursing home or rehabilitation hospitals or under constant supervision so that they do not hurt themselves.
