dc.description.abstractStudents often become overwhelmed with the amount of information to be learned in a course, and often feel under-prepared for exams. SI can provide peer-led study sessions that demonstrate effective note-taking, discussion, critical thinking, and a variety of review methods, including continuous review. The scheduled 2-3 sessions throughout the weeks of the semester offer students planned study time and review. All sessions are open to all enrolled in the particular course. Feeling more prepared and confident with the material not only produces higher test scores, but students participate more in class and are less hesitant to ask questions. SI Leaders are students who have already successfully completed the course and have successfully met the required criteria, as well as, the final approval of the course instructor. Leaders have completed, or will be completing, training offered through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) of which the department of Academic Skills is accredited. Defining SI, along with a bit of history, will demonstrate the benefits of the Supplemental Instruction program for both students and professors.
