Why Choose Supplemental Instruction?

Presenter

Naranja Davis, Coordinator/Recruiter STEP

 

Description


Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions. SI sessions are informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together.

Description


GPC has one of the largest student veteran populations in the State, and those numbers are expected to only increase on our campuses over the next several years. Military students often have unique issues and challenges they face as they make the transition from military life to college/civilian life. Do you feel equipped and ready to serve and assist them? Come learn about the programs and resources that are provided by GPC’s Military Outreach Center designed to help staff and faculty better understand and assist student veterans at GPC.
