Information to help candidates study and prepare the Foundations of Reading MTEL, with links to a variety of resources.
Take the entire official MTEL FOR practice test. Even if you've taken before, take it again. However, this time, write brief notes next to every answer option. It’s important to focus on the wrong answers as well as the correct answer in order to deepen your knowledge. Forcing yourself to write notes makes you a better reader of test questions, serves as an excellent review of material, and reveals gaps in knowledge that require further studying. Example:1.
