Think about how conventional technology has in the past generally created texts that copy the dominant codes and conventions of the genre
Who or what is represented in your text(s)? How has this been conveyed? etc
What ‘values’ and beliefs seem to the dominant ones in the text(s) you have chosen
Quite literally look at which words are used. Look also of the language of camera angles, lighting, cropping – how has the construction of an image made us ‘read’ a particular image – look at the construction of meaning.
Have a look to see who owns the publications/production companies etc. What do you know about them? Google what else they own – how is this relevant?

Be able to define the dominant codes and conventions within the media text(s) that you have selected aimed at the target audience.
You have the rest of this lesson to plan and research what you can find out about your texts in relation to these themes...
