This one-hour webinar will provide an overview of the Massachusetts ABE Teacher's Licenses.
The Massachusetts ABE Teacher's License is competency-based so much of the coursework and personal learning, professional development training, and work and life experience teachers have amassed over the years can count toward an ABE license.
The ABE Licensure Prep Course is designed to help you acquire this professional license. Cohort members prepare for the MTELs, compile portfolios and prepare for teaching demonstrations with the help of the ABE licensure coaches.
With the increase in academic rigor spurred by the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education (CCRSAE) pursuing an ABE Teacher's License provides applicants the opportunity to critically assess their knowledge and teaching practices; increase the effectiveness of their classroom instruction to better meet students' needs and strengthen the quality of their program.
