Abstract

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a learning enhancement program. SI targets high risk courses instead of high risk students and offers assistance on an outreach basis in regularly scheduled, out of class sessions. SI facilitates students' mastery of the course concepts and encourages students to develop better learning skills and strategies. A student who has received a high grade in a targeted SI course is trained to become an SI leader. An SI leader re-attends the course to model effective student behaviors, and conducts weekly SI sessions. SI leaders facilitate students' understanding of course material via interactive learning strategies during SI sessions to encourage involvement, comprehension and higher order reasoning skills.
