English GCSE Media Coursework 1. How does advertising reinforce gender stereotypes? Today in the late 1990’s we can not escape advertising it bombards us from all types of media and every aspect of our lives. It is a multibillion-pound industry that stereotypes genders and tells us what we could become if we use certain products. Men being portrayed as cool, tough, athletic and stylish reinforce the gender stereotypes. One advert I have studied which reinforces the male stereotype is an advertisement for ‘Old Spice, White Water’. The advertisement shows a businessman in a kyak kyacking down a white water rapid. This is stereotyping the male businessman by showing him as an adventurous and carefree person who wears ‘Old Spice, White Water’. So this campaign is obviously aimed at businessmen who see them selves as adventurous and care free. Another advertisement I have chosen to study that reinforces the male stereotype is an advertisement for an eau de toilette by ‘Givenchy’. This advertisement reinforces the male stereotype by showing a man in a space suit in outer space looking up beyond infinity. So as space men are looked upon as top class people who have achieved many peoples ambition to look down on the world this what he is portrayed as in the advertisement. The two advertisements reinforce gender stereotypes by showing the men as successful, and fearless. One is a business man kyaking and the other is an astronaut. For males this is how advertisements reinforce gender stereotypes. ‘Givenchy’ stereotypes Women as elegant, perfect and classy as in an advertisement for a perfume called ’Organza’. The same stereotypical role is also taken up in most other advertisements aimed at women. The woman in the advertisement for ‘Organza’ is pictured next to an enlarged picture of the bottle for the perfume. Both look similar with the curves of the body being translated into

How does Steinbeck present the relationship between George and Lennie?
The novella is set in the 1930s which was the time of the Great Depression (this is a time when there was severe economic downfall due to the Wall Street Crash). This means that it was very uncommon to sustain a friendship as migrant workers never trusted each other and life was a great struggle, but there are two characters that do have a friendship and it is shown all over the book.
We are first introduced to the characters….

Child Abuse (NSPCC)
Hello, the topic I have chosen to talk to all of you about today is not only appealing but also particularly relevant to all of us in the room. The term ‘Child Abuse’ may seem straightforward to everyone here, but it isn’t so clear-cut, there are many other ‘sub-topics’ which branch out of child abuse like for example: Bullying and Child Neglection. It is often overlooked and taken as a joke by many people and communities, and this isn’t right….
The drawings show a humming bird and a sun bird feeding.
Both of these birds feed on nectar which is a sugary liquid found inside flowers.
Use the information from the drawings to answer the following questions.
Describe, as fully as you can, how the humming bird is adapted for feeding on nectar.
of the subject, revision goes out of the window, and you’ll most likely fail your exams meaning you’ve wasted your education learning about something you despise. Just because you were good at something at GCSE, it doesn’t mean you’ll enjoy it at A-Level. A-Level English is fairly similar to GCSE, only the texts you’ll read are a lot broader in terms of content. I found them to be a lot nicer! Luckily for me, Shakespeare made no appearance in my first….

Media Practice Paper
1a) The ever increasing popularity of crime dramas is a result of the programme being voyeuristic and escapist in terms of representations, as people often seek the thrill and danger without being involved in the programme itself. An example of this would be in ‘Sherlock’, as the protagonist ‘Sherlock’, is shown to be an intellectual genius, solving the crimes mathematically by using his own unique technique. This is important, as the audience almost want to spy on the character….
