To assist students of world history in achieving their highest
academic potential, the University IS providing Supplementary Instruction
(SI) for these classes. I strongly encourage your participation.
The SI leaders are undergraduate students like yourselves who
have done well in this course and have been interviewed and hired for
their ability to lead discussions of lecture and textbook topics (one
discussion for every class) with those of you who wish to participate.
It is entirely up to the students as to whether to get involved
in SI, but it could be very helpful, as proven by the grades of many
of those who participated in SI last year.
It is important for you to understand, however, that SI is
not a tutoring session and not for those who want to cram before a test
. It is for those who wish to enhance their understanding of the subject
so that they can earn the high test scores they want.
In addition, be aware that in the basement of this building
there was tutors provided for (among other subjects) world history;
these Study Partners, as they are called, are available at various times
throughout the day, so please inquire.
