Teacher Training Workshops

REEI organizes one-day teacher training workshops on a variety of topics. These may take place all over the state of Indiana. Topics vary from year to year. The series, Geography and History of the World, is designed to assist Indiana teachers with implementation of the new Indiana Department of Education Standards.

Classroom Visits

Indiana University arranges for faculty, advanced graduate students or international students to give presentations on a variety of topics. In recent years we’ve focused a great deal of attention on doing site visits to all of the precollege Russian language programs in Indiana and neighboring states. We have also formed a partnership with the Bloomington campus Upward Bound Project to offer Russian language training in their six week summer residential academic experience.

Audiovisual and Curriculum Lending Library

REEI lends material free of charge to users nationwide. The collection includes new releases of Russian and East European feature films (with English subtitles) and documentary programs designed for college -and precollege-level audiences. Books and teaching aids, youth-specific videos, and maps are also available.
