CourseGraphic MTEL (Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure) Prep is designed to help prepare students for the Communication and Literacy Skills Test (CLST), a computer-based and self-scheduled exam required for teacher licensure (pre-k through grade 12) in the state of Massachusetts. The course is divided into two sessions, each with a specific subtest focus. The Reading Subtest Focus, a four-week session, is designed to introduce the format and objectives of the CLST Reading Subtest, to develop reading comprehension techniques and to provide critical process of elimination strategies. The Writing Subtest Focus, an eight-week session, is designed to introduce the format and objectives of the CLST Writing Subtest, to review essential grammar and usage, to refine writing skills and to provide strategies tailored to each of the four components of the exam. Students may enroll in one or both sessions, depending on their testing history and needs. Participants in both sessions of the course are expected to complete homework assignments designed to reinforce concepts introduced in class each week. Students should expect to devote a solid and consistent amount of time to work outside of class, using practice test results, scores and instructor feedback to further tailor their studies. Required text for all MTEL Prep students: The Official THEA Test Study Guide (ISBN 0-89056-022-6)
