REEP ESL Curriculum for Adults

REEP English Classes for Adults - ESL Curriculum


The REEP Adult ESL Curriculum is a comprehensive system that provides instructional direction for programs and teachers of adult immigrants and refugees. First published in 1982, this student-centered, life skills focused curriculum is continuously updated to reflect advances in the fields of adult education, instructed second language acquisition and literacy, and to meet the changing needs of our students. Needs assessment and goal setting activities are at the heart of the curriculum and enable students to actively direct their learning. Students vote on life skills topics such as health, employment, community, government, and transportation to determine the context through which they will develop speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Digital literacy skills development weaves through all levels and topics of the curriculum.
