The Citadel started the Supplemental Instruction (SI) program in spring semester in 2010. Originally available to only three History 104 classes, SI has spread to include other history classes, biology classes, and CSI political science and psychology classes.
Si is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. It is not the same thing as tutoring, as SI focuses on the entire class while tutoring is for individual students who need extra help. It is voluntary and is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grade.
The SI leader will be in class with you every day, hearing what you hear and reading what you read. What the SI leader won’t do is lecture; his or her job is to help you think about the lectures you hear and the books you read, and then put it all together during the SI review sessions.
If you attend SI sessions regularly, chances are you’ll earn a better grade. You’ll developed a better understanding of course content as well as more effective ways of studying. This will help you in other classes also.
