Let Me Spell it Out SI Stands for Supplemental Instruction An Academic Assistance Program
A Little Background Information Never Hurts Developed by Dr. Deanna Martin in1973 at the University of Kansas City. Targets traditionally difficult academic subjects. Those with high fail rates and withdrawals. Targets historically hard courses rather then high risk students. SI starts the first day of class and runs till finals. Offering an out of class, peer facilitated study session.
If Your Class Offers it, Get Involved! SI participants are proven to earn as much as, but not limited to, a grade point higher. Provided they want it. Participants learn valuable study skills they can apply to their current and future classes. In a strong encouraging environment students develop a stronger sense of belief that they can do the things they are doubting.
