Supplemental Instruction is an internationally recognized academic support program designed to organize and improve the ways in which students prepare for classes outside of the classroom. SI is peer facilitated, meaning students meet in groups that are led by student leaders, and targets historically difficult courses so as to improve student performance and retention by offering regularly scheduled, out-of-class review sessions.
SI provides students with a systematic and disciplined approach for processing the subject material assigned by the professor. Through this program, an SI leader is assigned to a subject - a student who has demonstrated proficiency in a targeted subject and has undergone SI training.
SI leaders attend the subject in order to keep up with the subject content being presented and to model effective student practices and attitudes. The SI leader schedules and conducts from three to five group meetings a week at times convenient to members of the class.
During study sessions, the SI leader uses interactive learning strategies which encourage involvement, comprehension and synthesis of subject content. In addition, the SI leader will incorporate demonstrations of effective study techniques.
Attend once or attend every session - the choice is up to you. But, the more you attend, the better off you are; studies show that the more you participate, the higher your final course grade will be.
