SP.120 Program XL: You Can Be a Success at MIT
Academic enrichment program for first-year students, XL utilizes the innovative and effective small-group learning concept to enhance academic performance in calculus and science. Students meet in study groups of five to six participants with facilitators trained in effective classroom techniques and concept focus. Study groups help students to reinforce concepts learned in the regular curriculum, and help them gain mastery of concepts and problems that are often more challenging than those dealt with during lecture. Emphasizes the full participation of each student with the facilitator acting as guide. The regularity of weekly meetings enhances the students' understanding of MIT's academic expectations. After the initial meetings, students are encouraged to take more responsibility and to lead the group in problem-solving sessions. Each study group meets for a minimum of three hours each week. The meeting time is set by the XL facilitator based on students' schedules.
