COMMUNICATION & LITERACY MTEL WORKSHOP

This workshop will cover both the Reading and Writing subtests of the Communication and Literacy MTEL. We will go over the test objectives, sample questions, test-taking strategies, and have some laughs while doing it. We will go over grammar in context, rather than as an isolated topic. We will also cover some MTEL logistics questions.

GENERAL CURRICULUM MULTI SUBJECT WORKSHOP

This workshop is designed to prepare students to succeed on the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) General Curriculum Multi-Subject exam. During the workshop, students will be exposed to the most commonly used English Language Arts, Science and Technology and Historical terminology given on the exam. Students will review proper MTEL test-taking strategies, review the scoring rubric for the written response portion and will be able to try actual test questions with instant answer analysis. Due to the fact that this exam covers a wide variety of subject areas and grade level content, students will be given the opportunity to create their own guided study index cards after they are able to watch over 40 short and informational videos as a whole group.
