THE JOYS OF SI

Is your class attended by a Supplemental Instruction Leader? Come to an SI Session!

THE JOYS OF SI:

  • FREE peer help and support
  • A friendly environment
  • Helpful handouts
  • Exam reviews
  • Meeting new people
  • Hands-on activities
  • Group/Collaborative work
  • Improved grades

WHAT’S AN SI LEADER?

An “SI leader” is assigned to each SI supported class. The SI leader is a student who has taken the class before, and done very well. She/he attends the class again and models ideal student behavior. The SI leader conducts 3 or more 50-minute planned study sessions per week. SI sessions are not a time for the SI leader to re-lecture the same material presented in class. Rather, they are a time when you can work in small, collaborative groups with your classmates to review lecture material.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

If you attend SI sessions regularly, chances are you’ll earn a better grade. In fact, our stats show that SI participants earn higher mean final grades regardless of prior achievement levels. SI really works!!
