MAT Student pilot MTEL in Chinese Language

Brandeis’ first cohort in its Masters of Arts in Teaching Chinese Program piloted the MTEL (Massachusetts Test for Licensure) for Chinese language educators in early October. The purpose of the MTEL is to assure that prospective applicants teaching positions in Massachusetts public school have the skills and knowledge required to teach their subject matter. As more and more high school worldlanguage departments are offering Chinese, Pearson Publishing Company and the Massachusetts Department of Education designed its first Chinese MTEL and invited Brandeis MAT students, Rita Wen, Catherine Hou, Bei Zhou, Reid Wyatt, and Seth Warren to help test the test. By agreeing to participate, they all had the opportunity for a “first peak” at multiple choice and open-response questions, which may be on future tests.  Brandeis University’s MAT in Chinese is one of the first of its kind in New England.
