Supplemental Instruction


Welcome to Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly peer lead review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses (courses with high "D", Fail, or Withdraw rate) at Central Michigan University. SI is provided for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and their grades. Each SI session is led by a SI Leader, who is an exemplar student who had previously completed and excelled in the course, is specially trained in SI methods, attends the class to take notes, models effective student behavior, and is culturally competent to serve a diverse student body. SI is a chance for students in the class to get together to compare notes, discuss important concepts, develop strategies for studying the subject, and to test themselves before the professor does. By attending SI, students will have developed a better understanding of course content, as well as more effective ways of studying. These study skills and techniques help the student in the SI course as well as in their other courses.
