MTEL stands for Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure. These are subject-specific tests taken by prospective Massachusetts high school teachers to demonstrate proficiency in their subject areas. The organization that develops these tests is asking for university or college physics faculty to help design the physics test. The work will take place on Thursday October 15, 7:45 am - 5:00 pm, in Westborough MA.
If you are interested, the first step is to fill out an application form, available, along with other information at:

There are few things as important to the health of our discipline as the quality of the high school physics teachers who introduce students to the subject, and it is very much to our advantage, as well as our responsibility, to do what we can to see that our perspective on physics is reflected in those teachers' preparation. So I encourage anyone who is able to participate in this one-day workshop to consider doing so.
