The SI sessions integrate how-to-learn with what-to-learn. Students who attend the SI session discover appropriate application of study strategies as they review content material, e.g., note taking, graphic organization, questioning techniques, vocabulary acquisition, and test preparation. Students have the opportunity to become actively involved in the subject material as the SI leaders use the text, supplementary readings, and lecture notes as vehicles for learning skill instruction. SI sessions are attended on a voluntary basis and no effort is made to separate students based on academic ability. Since SI is introduced on the first day of class and is open to all students in the class, SI is not viewed as remedial.
