Codes/Conventions & Values/Ideology

Hey there Punkazoids,

Today we read the text and took some board notes about media codes and conventions. We also looked at the values that media promotes and how that might clash with your personal ideology.

As a homework assignment, you were given a handout to complete. You are to pick a television show you know well. On the sheet, break down the codes and conventions -both symbolic and technical- of that show and explain what values/ideology it promotes.

If you’ve already lost the handout, here it is:

Codes, Conventions and Ideology

Get this done for next time. Yes, I will check it.
