The REEP Family Literacy Curriculum: Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced.
Arlington County Public Schools, VA. REEP, Arlington Education and Employment Program.
The Arlington Education and Employment Program (REEP) developed and field-tested the REEP Family Literacy Curriculum during the REEP Family English and Learning Project. The project was intended to help parents improve their English language skills and increase their involvement with their children's schooling. The curriculum was developed to assist in meeting this goal. Each level consists of guidelines for developmental reading and writing, guidelines for needs assessment, learning objectives, functions and sample language, resources, and integration. The curriculum addresses personal identification, understanding the child's school, family literacy, and parents as teachers. It is a competency-based curriculum, and expected performance is clearly stated in the learning objectives. The fluency and proficiency with which learners are able to use language should be measured using the REEP Instructional Levels and Mainstream English Language Training levels.
