Supplemental Instruction : Students Helping Students

 

WHAT IS SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTION?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a non-remedial approach to learning that supports students toward academic success by integrating “what to learn” with “how to learn.” SI consists of regularly scheduled, out-of-class group study sessions driven by students’ needs. Sessions are facilitated by trained peer leaders who utilize collaborative activities to ensure peer-to-peer interaction in small groups. SI is implemented in high-risk courses in consultation with academic staff and is supported and evaluated by a trained supervisor.

Purpose:

  1. To increase retention within targeted historically difficult courses
  2. To improve student grades in targeted historically difficult courses
  3. To increase the graduation rates of students

SI is a free service offered to all students in a targeted course. All students are encouraged to attend SI sessions, as it is a voluntary program. Students with varying levels of academic preparedness and diverse backgrounds participate.

 

Interested in becoming an SI Leader? 

  • Make sure you earn an A or B in the class for which you'd like to be an SI Leader
  • Ask your instructor to recommend you--an application link will be sent out to instructors around the 12th week of the semester
  • After being recommended, check your MJC e-mail regularly for announcements on the employment process from Christian Cavalho, Program Assistant
