The Advanced Culture, Civics, and English Studies (ACCESS) Curriculum
was created for advanced level students in the REEP program. Students
in ACCESS levels (500 and 550) refine their English language skills
in the context of academic subject areas. With a focus on U.S. culture,
history, and current events, ACCESS is designed to help students develop
the background knowledge necessary to transition to non-language focused
activities. Special attention is paid to writing, reading, oral presentation,
study strategies, and test taking skills.
Each 12-week instructional cycle is divided into a series of thematic
units that allow students to experience a broad range of academic content
The instructional year at REEP is divided into four 12-week cycles.
