The Assignments

So, first we start of with a brief than covers the pass criteria for both Critical Responses and research…

I will be marking using mindmaps, which look like this for Research…

3.1 Nature and purposes of Research 3.2 apply research methods and techniques 3.3 Present results

And this for Critical Responses….

6.1 Critical responses 6.2 crit responses 6.3 crit responses 6.4 Critical responses

Then, you can do the audience research bit – make a questionnaire to find out about your audience (likes, dislikes etc) and turn it into an audience profile…

Then you look at how products are made for an audience; maybe a focus group, or look at how genres change over time…

and finally, an analysis and personal response to a product.
