Assignment Brief

You want to get into the world of TV presenting, particularly magazine programmes aimed at a teenage audience. Later on you will work as part of a team to produce just such a programme but first you will need to research different presenter styles to show you understand what the role is and to prepare for it.

In order to achieve your dream as a TV Presenter you will compile a TV Presenter Workbook for your assignment. During class you watched and listened to a range of presentation styles and purposes and analysed and deconstructed them. Use the ‘Deconstruction Sheet’ and its headings and class discussions of selected material to support your analyses of television and radio presenters. Your answers should include some of the indicative content listed above. The Deconstruction Sheet(s) must be submitted with your assignment.

Independent study is also encouraged, in order for you to provide evidence of individual achievement and understanding. Using the scenario above, you will present the results of your research in a short written report of 750 words and/or a short presentation to the class.
