Peer Assisted Learning
Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) offers structured study sessions facilitated by peer students (PAL Leaders) who have already taken a course, done well in it, and are highly recommended to the program by the instructor.
PAL study sessions are weekly-held reviews for all students, whether struggling or doing well, who are enrolled in historically difficult courses that offer the PAL program. A PAL Leader provides a study environment for students who want to improve their understanding of course materials, learn to study more effectively and improve their grades. They also share their own successful study strategies, providing a roadmap to success in class.
PAL Leaders are not available for all classes, but many math and science classes currently offer the program.
