operates a comprehensive outreach program serving the general public and the education, government and business community locally, regionally and nationally. REEI maintains contact with K-12 teachers through representation at regional and national teacher professional meetings, direct mailings to teachers who receive a free quarterly newsletter, Outreach Notes, and direct e-mail to teachers who have previously been involved with the center. Alone, and in partnership with other organizations, REEI produces new curricula that are authored by teachers and distributed nationwide. Published units are submitted to the ERIC Clearing House for Social Studies. University Russian and European experts work directly in classrooms either live or via interactive video.
