Supplemental Instruction (SI) teaches students to effectively study in groups.
The participating professor helps to choose a model student who has previously done well in the course. This student is then hired as an SI Leader to attend all class meetings, read the assigned material again, and lead three voluntary study sessions per week, facilitating review of notes and discussion of class material, and modeling the study skills needed to handle the particular subject matter.
Students learn more than the subject material - they learn how to form
effective study groups and gain skills that will help them excel in a
wide variety of courses across the campus. SI can help all students more
fully understand course material and, consequently, achieve better
