LASSO Supplemental Instruction


SI Session
SI sessions are interactive and collaborative. Students who attend sessions learn to integrate how to learn with what to learn.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a free, peer-led studying opportunity for students enrolled in historically challenging courses and gateway courses. Sessions are led by a student who has previously excelled in the course and who continues to be actively involved by attending lectures, taking notes and serving as a model student in the classroom. SI sessions are held outside of class where SI leaders facilitate discussions and study activities that allow students to prepare for exams, clarify questions and master course materials by working together in a cooperative learning environment.

Why should I attend SI?

  1. It’s FREE!
  2. Students who attend SI statistically earn higher grades than those who do not attend.
  3. 1 hour of SI = 2 hours of independent study.
  4. SI is led by a student who has already earned an A in the course.
  5. SI meetings occur weekly, giving students an additional way to better understand course material and to clarify questions they may have about readings or lecture notes.
