Year 12 to do

  1. 1. Year 12 To do by half term….
  2. 2. • Create a blog and personalise it best you can – you can continue to change it… • Take photos and use Photoshop to create the cover and contents page for a school magazine. Don’t bust a gut over this, but get the pages posted on your blog with a few comments about what you did. • Using various presentational methods, post research on your blog – start with at least three magazine covers, three double-paged articles, three contents pages. Put them in three different posts. • By the end of the academic year, you need over 60 posts, which is not too hard to do…
  3. 3. • Methods you could use: slideshare, slideboom, prezi, buubl.us, animoto, go-animate, emaze, slide.s, zoho, powtoon, metachart, pollsnack and – many more. If you find a good one, tell other people. You’ll have to register for these (avoid the sections that ask for money) and you’ll need to post the embed code – after you’ve clicked html NOT compose. You’ll work it out. • Some of these will require you to post straight to the site but others will need a powerpoint presentation to upload. • You should also aim to do a podcast every couple of weeks, perhaps summing up what you’ve done. You can upload this on Soundcloud
  4. 4. • A post on Naomi Wolf’s The Beauty Myth – ask if you’re stuck • A post on Marjorie Ferguson’s theory about facial types on magazine covers • Blumler and Katz’ Uses and Gratifications and how magazines fulfil the four needs • A post on three magazine publishers/distributors – one of which should be Bauer – brief descriptions of all three • A post on the significance of magazine reader profiles – do this by looking at one in particular. You can find these on the net
  5. 5. • A pitch for your magazine – be specific about PRIMARY target audience in terms of gender and age. Secondary target audience can be more loosely defined. Does your magazine have a unique selling point? What does it do that others don’t? How does it reach its audience? • A questionnaire into the needs of your target audience – you could do this on Survey Monkey. I would suggest that you skew the results so they are the answers you want… • Post your results in the form of pie charts or bar charts and make sure you make some kind of comment on their significance
  6. 6. • Create a reader profile for your own magazine • Sketch out some initial flatplans – these will have to be scanned and posted • Masthead designs – you can use font sites but at the moment, the better ones seem to be blocked – you can select several and ask your ‘target audience’ to evaluate one and, surprise, surprise, it will choose exactly the one you want! • Keep doing podcasts. If you want to be really ambitious, speak to a camera and post that!
  7. 7. • Complete a photo analysis. See here: http://hannahwoodmedia.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/phot o-analysis-all-saints.html • And here: http://hannahwoodmedia.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/phot o-analysis-oasis.html • Take some initial photographs but when you start working on them, you will need to post evidence of your progression – so lots of screen-shots and comments… • Write your article/feature – make sure you capture the right tone. Mode of address is important. Use the right kind of language – so have a look at something similar and see how it’s done. You need at least TWO sides of a word document, Times New Roman font; size 12. Don’t set it out in columns because you’ll be transferring it to InDesign later.
