Student Support Services offers Supplemental Instruction (referred to as “SI”) for a number of historically difficult classes. This special type of group study is a non-remedial approach to learning enrichment that increases student performance and retention.
SI offers regularly scheduled, out-of-class review sessions to SSS participants enrolled in a targeted course. SI study sessions are informal seminars in which students review notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and prepare for exams. SSS participants learn how to integrate course content with reasoning and study skills. Simply put, students not only learn what to learn, but how to learn.
SI sessions are facilitated by SI “leaders,” students who have previously and successfully completed the targeted course. They attend all class lectures, take notes, and act as model students for their classmates.
ALL SSS PARTICIPANTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO
PARTICIPATE IN SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION IF IT IS
ATTACHED TO A CLASS IN WHICH THEY ARE ENROLLED.
