Year 8

Give them the future they deserve

Global Education Academy provides tutoring to Year 8 students in literacy and numeracy.

What makes our program successful

  • The only research-based learning centre (Cognitive Load Theory)

  • Program developed by the founder – Dr Majeda Awawdeh (previously managed  ICAS exams at UNSW)
  • Fully qualified educators with many years’ experience
  • Specialised small groups

This is the year where most schools start grouping students in levels for future maths and English. These group levels usually start in Year 9 and continue to Year 12. Whether students are looking to do extension maths or English, or want to have strong foundation in their core subjects, they need to start accelerating their maths and English immediately. GEA does not put a ceiling on students’ learning. Each student can have his/her individual path and excel. With GEA’s guidance, students learn to analyse assessments and tasks, study and manage their time and most importantly they are equipped with cognitive load management techniques.

Literacy

This course explores beyond the fundamental elements of the year 8. It encourages students to develop more independent proficiency when interpreting and completing assignment work. It also empowers them with new study habits.

One of the key focal aspects, contained in each term’s program, is the study of how technology is impacting on change in the way students engage in literacy, language and literature tasks at school, and how the devices, tools and resources are shaping how students learn at school.

Students undertaking this course will be well-prepared and provided with the tools, skills and strategies to progress to Stage 5 with knowledge, confidence and high levels of self-esteem. Above all, they will develop a life-long love of learning, and a desire to delve deeper into the realms of superlative literature.

    Numeracy 

    This course contains the fundamental elements of year 8, yet explores beyond this to encourage students to develop more independent thinking skills. The course includes all the core topics for stage 4 and accelerates the students to enable them to choose a more advanced pathway in Year 9. The outcomes set for each of these elements also link to the NSW Board of Studies Syllabus in mathematics. The main outcomes are:

    • Number and Algebra (Algebraic techniques, Indices, equations, Linear relationship, Rates and ratios, Financial mathematics)
    • Measurement and Geometry (Pythagoras, Properties of geometric figures, Angle relationship)
    • Statistics and Probability (data collection and representation, single variable data analysis and probability)
    • Problem solving

    Course Structure:

    The course is structured for 4 terms of 10 weeks each. Students attend a 2-hour class once a week.

    Each term students receive GEA book that is mapped to the syllabus and written based on Cognitive Load Theory.

    In week 9 of each term students are assessed to measure their progress. Full feedback is given to students. Parents receive a comprehensive report for their child’s progress. Week 10 is the consolidation week.
