School magazine research uploaded

  1. 1. Talia Smith
  2. 2.    To Inform – get information out to students about things going on in the school eg. revision dates, clubs, special events. To promote – to others in the community, showing the best assets of the school to prospective parents planning to send their students to the school/show parents with children currently going to the school what they’re getting up to. Student voice – magazine made by students for students, about student concerns, relatable topics etc.
  3. 3.     Pupils – Student voice to relate to, opportunities in school such as competitions and information about the school such as educational tips would sell effectively, as it would appeal to the stereotypical school student. Teachers – The latest news and information about the school would appeal to teachers reading a school magazine as it would communicate what's happening in the school. Parents – parents can read the magazine to be alerted about information of what their child is getting involved in within the schools, also tips about education would appeal to this audience as they can read how to help assist their child. Governors – People with a higher position in the community can be informed on what's going on within a school through a school magazine.
  4. 4.    From inductive research on magazines I have learnt successful magazines contain a masthead, headline, lures and cover lines. These would make a school magazine successful and make people want to read what’s inside. A successful school magazine would use semiotics and have the schools logo/badge on the front cover as the masthead, as a denotation of which school the magazine is all about, if a school magazine didn’t state which school it was about, it wouldn’t be successful in wanting students to read it. Usual common conventions such as a barcode would not be needed for a school magazine as they are not sold but given out to the school community to get information across.
  5. 5.     Successful school magazines have an image of a student on the cover to represent the school. The best photographical skill to use is the rule of thirds. This helps to align the photo correctly. The best way is to align the eyes of the model 1/3 of the way down the scale, if not it doesn’t make the cover as welcoming. By having the eyes lined up it makes it like the model is looking out to the audience in a welcoming way making them want to read the product.
  6. 6. Language used is informal to relate to the teenage target audience Large, visible masthead Happy faced models On the front cover Portray the school To be a happy, positive Place to be. The lure in the form of a rhetorical question making the audience want to find out more Images relate to genre Lack of colours in text used makes it less interesting
