The Got-A-Head®? curriculum is based around four key elements: memorisation, observation, reading effectively and thinking.
You can read more about each of the individual elements and some of the techniques that we will adopt using the drop-down menu for this section.
Vital though those elements are, for us it is the synergy between them that is key. Although each element has its own set of techniques or approaches, it won't be done in isolation from the other elements.
"Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential."
The four elements are often taught in silos, with thinking skills taught apart from memory skills, separate from accurate observation or how to read effectively.
However, these cognitive disciplines actually have a great deal of synergy and can be learnt and understood better when taught as parts of a whole.
Got-A-Head®? makes a point of using exercises and activities that draw the elements together, using two, three or even all four at the same time.
