Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Compare the representation of ethnicity in a range of popular mainstream TV programmes or soap operas.

    "In the episodes of the soaps that were shown on Tuesday 13th March 07, there are more White extras in the background of Hollyoaks while there is a balance in EastEnders as you can see Asian, Black and White extras. This may be by accident but there should also be a balance of the extras even though many of them will not say anything at all. Overall, Hollyoaks has a better image for the area it is based in whereas EastEnders does not due to the fact there are less Asian and Black people but in reality, there is a balance in London. Even though Hollyoaks does not have a balance between Black, Asian and White people, it still represents the area of Chester. When EastEnders uses other ethnic minorities, they usually stereotype problems like family and relationships. Therefore, I believe that Hollyoaks is much more successful in using other ethnic minorities in a positive and non-stereotypical way as they are shown as having healthy and steady relationships. However the effectiveness and whether they actually fulfil the initial aim completely relies on the quality if the scripts, the availability of the storylines and the willingness of the producers to defy conventions."

  • Yr 11 Media Studies- Discuss the Representation of Youths in Contrasting films.

    "In conclusion I feel that both films had many different similarities with friends and they are both extremely realistic. The differences that these two films enclose are that 10 Things I Hate About You contains less problems than stand by me and it is positive as it represents youth in a positive light. Stand By Me is very negative. This is because it contains issues that the audience find distressing and might not want to accept in reality."

  • Analyse how structural and linguistic devices are used to target specific audiences in printed media texts.

    "In conclusion, presentation, language and style is important in attracting specific audiences, if all holiday brochures were set out and written the same, only one type of person would go on holiday. For example, if an article aimed at older adults was full of slang and had no information, about the resort, they wouldn't go on that holiday because they didn't know enough about it. A younger audience goes for an unconventional text and an older audience prefers a conventional text. The best way to write an article is to get the balance between the two, just right. Jacqueline Parvin 10RB 4"
