Foundations of Reading Workshop
During this single day test preparation workshop, participants will become familiar with and review the content of the Foundations of Reading MTEL, a requirement of Initial Licensure in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.
This workshop will focus on three sub-areas of this test: Foundations of Reading Development (understanding phonological and phonemic awareness, concepts about print and the alphabetic principle, the role of phonics, and word analysis skills and strategies); Development of Reading Comprehension ( understanding vocabulary development and application of comprehension strategies to literary and expository texts) and Assessment and Instruction (formal and informal assessment and multiple approaches to reading instruction).
Students are encouraged to review the Foundations of Reading Test on the DESE website prior to the workshop to familiarize themselves with the test format and content.
