What is SI?
Supplemental Instruction is a peer facilitated learning assistance program designed to improve learning and to provide academic support for students enrolled in historically challenging courses.
Throughout the semester, a trained Supplemental Instruction student leader attends all classes and models appropriate learning practices within the classroom.
The SI Leader attends trainings throughout the semester to learn strategies for effective study sessions for all learners. Outside the classroom, the SI leader conducts weekly group study sessions for students wishing to improve their understanding of course material.
Consistent participation in – and regular observation of – the course allows the SI leader to effectively augment classroom instruction during study sessions.
Motivated students who regularly participate in SI study groups have often increased their grade one-half to a whole grade, or more.
The Supplemental Instruction program is located in the Aspire wing of the Elliot Center. Please send all question and comments to Kathleen Maceda at email@example.com or 603-358-2351.
