Components of Supplemental Instruction (SI):
- To help students improve test scores and GPA in introductory and historically difficult courses (30% of students receiving a grade of D, F, or W) such as mathematics, science, social science, and law
- To help students gain leadership skills
- To reduce drop-out rates
- To increase attendance and graduation rate
Origin of Supplemental Instruction (SI):
Created by Deanna Martin, Ph.D., at University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) to decrease the attrition rate of students in the schools of medicine, pharmacy, and dentistry.
Rosemary Wolfe, recognized by UMKC Certified Trainer of Supervisors, developed the SI program at AACC.
