Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that increases student performance and retention. The SI program targets traditionally difficult academic subjects and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated sessions.

SI sessions are open to all students in the subject and are attended on a voluntary basis. SI leaders are students who have demonstrated competence in this subject.

SI leaders attend all class sessions, take notes, read all assigned material, and conduct three 50-minute SI sessions each week. SI sessions integrate how-to-learn with what-to-learn.

Students who attend SI sessions discover appropriate application of study strategies, e.g. note taking, graphic organization, questioning techniques, vocabulary acquisition, and test preparation, as they review content material.

Students have the opportunity to become actively involved in the subject material as the SI leaders use the text, supplementary readings, and lecture notes as the vehicle for learning skill instruction.
