Sure! These are the video's I watched in order to pass the exams. They cover all 3 exams. You will see this message when you click on a video link. Just follow the instructions I put in parenthesis below. ""The recording must be open in the Adobe Connect application If you already have the application and are still having problems, Try Again Do not have the Adobe Connect application? Download and install the Adobe Connect application to join this recording. Click 'Download Now' to download the application. Download Now Enable Flash to join meeting from the browser."" Copy and paste this entire message into a folder for quick access to these videos: READ THIS CAREFULLY READ THIS CAREFULLY READ THIS CAREFULLY This blog will not allow several links at a time. You will have to add "http://" to the beginning of a link. Example: You see - Add http// to the front, then it will be a complete link. If you don't add it, it will not open. CTEL 1: Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 CTEL 2 Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 CTEL 3 Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 You can follow this link along with watching the videos (It's what I did). Add the "http://" to the front of each link below: Other links to look over: Quizlet: for your desktop or laptop app for your smartphone (I used this a lot - just take out your phone and frequently test your knowledge in your spare time. Try to do it fast because you won't have time during the exam to ponder) Scaffolding: Frontloading: Metacognition: Reading Comprehension Strategies for English Language Learners I will provide Written response help tomorrow.

Can you share links to the three videos via a comment. I'm sure everyone in this comment thread would enjoy having that resource.

Do you still have your materials? I need them to take the test in May 2018. If they would still be applicable, and you have them available please let me know asap. Thank you. Kristine Richards

Hi Gail, Congratulations again on 12 years as a blogger. That's a mighty milestone. I laughed at your MySpace reference in your first blog post. How times have changed in 12 years. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful post too. How lucky you were to see George live. Like most teachers, I enjoy following his work and I hear his presentations are amazing! I totally agree with you about a lot of teachers just using blogs to post homework (or announcements about excursions, open nights etc). As you know, there is SO much more you can do! In fact, this prompted me to set up the Better Blogging With Students course for Edublogs (It's almost finished now). My aim has been to help teachers explore what 'better blogging' is and what's possible. How exciting that you're re-energized to recommending blogging in your workshops. I hope you'll be able to blog about it! :) Here's to 12 more years of blogging. I wonder what the world will look like in 2030! Kathleen

Hi all, I'd like to share the materials that helped me pass all 3 subsets in one day. Like most I used "A Course for Teaching English Learners" by Lynne Diaz-Rico. I also used made my own flashcards from the aforementioned book, and took every practice test I could find- from Mometrix and the CTEL testing site I also found CTEL practice test booklet at my local library). Don't buy the Mometrix CTEL exam secrets book- waste of $40! I agree with everything ThomasHahn shared above and the Diaz-Rico book is DRY! I had to google lots of the theories in order to fully understand how to effectively apply the techniques from the book ( and I've been a bilingual teacher for 4 years.. I can't imagine how hard this exam might be for a new teacher or a gym teacher etc.) Lastly Stanford University no longer teaches a course to pass the CTEL BUT they released all the materials that they used in the courses. ( I didn't use the Stanford material b/c I only received it after I took all 3 subsets) I'd like to share the link here- I hope these materials can help someone! good luck. Oh and don't feel obligated to take all 3 at once, it was hard but doable!

Thank you, Gail! We're working on more materials for students and teachers and will soon offer them on our website About positive school-wide changes, have you seen this outstanding research?

I just took my final ctel exam - expecting to have passed. I suppose there are two or three things i should emphasize. First, download the KSA's and familiarize yourself with all the terminology & concepts they contain. I used internet searches & two old Lynne Diaz Rico CTEL books (the cheap older editions) to help inform me. Lynn Diaz Rico's two books on the test are dull & lacking in many things, so you'll need to supplement them - particularly for ctel 2; they are however helpful. Second, distinguish between "should understand" requirements, & "should apply/know" requirements on the KSA's: the second types generate the material for the essay questions. Third, use the practice questions from the mtel website. You'll find there a similar English language authorization test that is helpful in providing you with many similar questions, giving you a good feel for the subtleties. Mtel's "foundations of english language" practice test was also of benefit for ctel 2. I also purchased the Pearson practice test. Fourth, download a few good flash cards - cram's was particularly good for ctel 2. Fifth, when taking the test, make ample use of flags & move on; don't get bogged down on any one question. Once you return to problematic flagged questions, your mind is often clearer & you notice the careful language that automatically dismisses that other choice. I left all 3 tests confident that i had passed - but ctel 2 was definitely the most difficult for which to prepare because I had a lot of trouble finding clear info that corresponded to the KSA's. Once you are comfortable with the language of the KSA's, you are ready for the test. Focus your studies on the KSA's: there is a ton of extraneous info out there that you don't need to know for the test. I felt very comfortable before each test.
