Product Description

This booklet is a fantastic way to introduce documentary conventions at the beginning of a learning program or at the end for revision.

This resource breaks down the different conventions, giving students a definition, examples and most importantly and explanation on why a text creator would use them.

Conventions included are:

- graphics and writing

- experts

- diegetic and non-diegetic sound

- symbolic codes

- written codes

- audio codes

- technical codes

- interview

- editing

- narrator

- archival footage

- characterisation

The booklet also covers subjectivity vs objectivity, as well as the different types of documentaries. This can be paired with a fishbone activity, or students taking notes themselves.
