The MTEL preparatory course is a seven-week, one-credit course that prepares students for the communication and literacy portion of the Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL). While the course focuses on writing, reading, and the various types of MTEL questions, emphasis is placed on writing fundamentals (grammar, mechanics, punctuation) and on reading comprehension. Students write and edit essays, read and summarize passages, learn test-taking strategies, and take practice exams. Students take the Communication and Literacy MTELs at the conclusion of the course. Lab fee is charged.
