Taking into account the differences in English skills and age, the classes are divided into two levels, Level 1 (Basic) and Level 2 (Advanced). This is designed to address the various kinds of problems faced by young students at different stages in their education whilst also laying down a solid foundation to increase their independent thinking capabilities.
Golden Key Education have established the Golden Key teaching team in order to help students cultivate important skills such as logical thinking, creative thinking, focus, memory recall, communication, calculation and rapid reading levels. Integrating the South Australian Education Departments ‘Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority’ (ACARA) standards for years 3-6, the team have designed 4 exciting classes filled with fun activities as well as a course booklet for students. Also included are mathematics and English lessons in accordance to the South Australian syllabus as well as UMAT (Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test) related training. Students will be able to have an enjoyable learning experience whilst also improving their skills and emotional intelligence.
The Brain-It-On program has prepared 4 different classes for both difficulty levels. These four lessons include the Detective Lessons, Patterns & Problem-Solving lessons, Pictorial Memory Lessons and Attention & Time Management Lessons. These lessons include fun and exciting activities like puzzle solving, role playing, memory recall and ‘truth or lie’ games, with a focus on logical & deductive thinking, reading and writing as well as memory association and other activities designed to nurture and encourage learning.
The Detective Lesson portion will present to students a hypothetical scenario, allowing them to take on the role of a detective and improve their focus, observational skills and logical analysis abilities in a fun and exciting setting. Different scenarios will provide different experiences related to observation and reasoning skills. Student will also experience different levels of logical analysis through the presentation of information in a variety of ways to help promote intellectual development as well as logical analysis methods. This is particularly useful for students participating in the AMC Maths Competition during the logical analysis portion of the competition.
The Patterns & Problem-Solving segment of the course combines local ACER Scholarship mathematics courses with the Standard Curriculum to help children develop mathematical pattern recognition and analysis capabilities. This not only benefits students by improving their all-round learning capabilities but also helps students attempting ACER scholarships to attain excellent results.
The Pictorial Memory section will provide students with English paragraphs, flow charts and other different English text and image materials. Through reading and capturing key information within a short period of time and strengthening associative memory to improve rapid memory recall, students will improve their written and logical analysis skills whilst laying a strong foundation for students attempting ACER scholarships and future UMAT tests.
The Truth and Lies section teaches students through games and the use of descriptive language to improve their language analysis and communication skills as well as improving their emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills. This will help students in their future development in both society and the workplace.
The Brain-It-On course will provide a booklet to students to aid them in their study. The booklet each student receives will be based on the educational background of the students and which class they attend (Level 1 or Level 2). After participating in the fun class activities, students can use the booklet to help them review and summarize each lesson.
