Wayland, MA (PRWEB) June 09, 2015
PrepForward, a leader in online teacher preparation, is increasing its offerings to include support for the MTEL Foundations of Reading exam to help prospective teachers with licensure preparation. PrepForward has already helped thousands of Massachusetts teachers prepare for their MTEL exams and wants to help future educators master the core content for this exam.
Elementary, early childhood, and special education teachers must pass the difficult MTEL 90 Foundations of Reading exam to get licensed in Massachusetts. In the past year, the pass rates for the Foundations of Reading exam were approximately 61% for first time test-takers and even lower at 41% for those trying again. These prospective teachers must demonstrate mastery in areas including phonological and phonemic awareness, word analysis, reading comprehension strategies, the alphabetic principle, approaches to reading instruction, and assessment.
In an effort to better support teachers in MA, PrepForward is proud to announce the addition of this new self-paced, comprehensive course and a standalone diagnostic practice exam to help teachers pass the MTEL Foundations of Reading exam. The online preparation course, which is closely aligned to the exam objectives, features targeted lessons, interactive exercises, full-length MTEL practice tests, detailed explanations for every question, rich diagnostic data, and expert instructor support.
These solutions are an extension of PrepForward’s existing programs for teacher certification exam preparation and teacher professional development. PrepForward’s MTEL prep courses are being used by education programs across Massachusetts, including Boston Public Schools, Teach for America MA, Wheaton College, Elms College, and UMass Boston.
