Justin Laak

What is your major/minor?


What year in school are you?


Interesting fact?

I like Star Wars a lot. Sci-fi in general is cool but Star Wars is my favorite film series. Take on Me by A-ha is my favorite song. I play Magic The Gathering and Pokemon (the normal ones, not that there's anything wrong with GO!) and like to learn about movie effects. Is being happy to not have to do math anymore an interesting fact?

What do you do outside of being a busy student?

I play a number of games and probably remember more about them and their stories than I do math.

How many semesters have you been facilitating?

This is my first.

Which courses do you facilitate for now, or have in the past?

HIST 2111

What are your short-term and long-term goals, and how does SI (Supplemental Instruction) relate to those?

My short term goal is to finish my core and likely my associate's in Communications. Long term I'd like to work in the editing room for television shows or movies.

What is your favorite SI moment?

It's a bit too early, I'd say... it's always awesome to see the "Aha" moment a student gets though!

What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?

A better understanding of what teachers and professors go through when they plan for class.

What study tips/techniques do you have for students?

Don't wait until last minute, especially if it's a subject you don't enjoy as much. It's hardest to learn something that you're not interested in.

What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?

I like to see past the topical understanding of events or how they relate, like how we see Washington as the brilliant general who could do no wrong but in actuality he was the man in charge of the group that (accidentally) started the Seven Years' War.

What has been your favorite collaborative learning technique (CLT) that you have done in your sessions?
