Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. SI is provided for all ACCT 1010 students who want to improve their understanding of course material and their grades.

Attendance at sessions is voluntary. For you the student, it's a chance to

  • get together with people in your class to compare notes,
  • discuss important concepts,
  • develop strategies for studying the subject, and
  • test yourselves.
At each session, you will be guided through course material by your SI leader, an experienced student who has previously taken the course.

D. Dawwon, SI LeaderWho are SI Leaders?

Supplemental Instruction (SI) leaders are students themselves who are prepared to share with you what they have learned over the years about how to study. They know the course content and are eager to help guide you through it. They'll be in class with you every day, hearing what you hear and reading what you read.

When do review sessions start?

Please bring your official schedule of classes with you to the first class period so you will be able to complete the scheduling survey accurately. Each SI leader will set up three or more review sessions a week at times that are convenient for the majority of students. You can attend one, two, or all three (the choice is yours). Each session will be different because you'll have new material to discuss. SI review sessions are informal. Bring your notes; bring your textbook; bring your questions.

What's in it for me?

If you attend SI sessions regularly, you'll likely earn a better grade. A better understanding of course content as well as more effective ways of studying are benefits of attending SI sessions. This will also help you in other classes.
