REEPworld is an ongoing project of the Arlington Education & Employment Program (REEP) in Arlington, Virginia. This project was funded initially, in part, by an English Language Civics (EL Civics) grant awarded by the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2004-2005. Development continues to reflect ongoing development within various REEP curricula as well as design improvements.
The goal of this project is to provide adult English language learners with level-appropriate, web-based activities that target lifeskill areas, while also preparing students to use the Internet as a tool for learning and participating in their communities.
The lessons contained in the English Practice section of this website are intended for adult English language learners and were designed with low-proficiency and low-literacy learners in mind.
Modifiable and printable materials are provided for teachers in the Teacher Resources section as complement to the online lessons, in support of student comprehension as well as differentiated instructional considerations.
REEPworld is unique in the following respects:
