Structured Study Group Instructors – 7004

Fall 2019
* Multi-semester course

The Structured Study Group Program (SSG) is the Law School’s academic support program for students in first-year classes. In this seminar, SSG Program Supplemental Instructors (SI) will work with peers and with the program facilitators on best practices for SSG sessions and activities. SIs will learn from assigned readings, peers, and instructors about teaching methods, learning styles, and ways to help new students digest and retain information from their 1L classes. During the seminar, SIs will share lesson plans for their own SSG sessions, present mock lessons, and receive feedback from the seminar leaders and the other SIs. The seminar is a forum for SIs to discuss questions, problems, and ideas that will enable them to better serve their students. SIs are also expected to observe other SIs, maintain a TWEN (The Westlaw Education Network) site with materials for their course, participate in seminar discussions via email or TWEN, and meet with the program facilitators during the semester for check-ins. The seminar is evaluated on an S/N basis.
