The Student Hourly Assistant, under general supervision, will assist Remedial Instruction with Supplemental Instruction sessions.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support service that targets historically challenging courses. SI sessions are regularly scheduled, out-of-class review sessions for all students enrolled in a specific course.
The sessions are informal seminars in which students review notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and prepare for examinations.
Students learn how to integrate course content with reasoning and study skills. The SI sessions are facilitated by “SI leaders,” students who actually attend class with students and are prepared to share with students how to effectively study for the course and find their academic success. SI leaders support classroom instruction in every way.
