I'm trying to become a high school biology teacher. I've already completed my student teaching internship, I've passed the praxis core math exam with the help of a book by Lynn Gardener. But I cannot pass the praxis core reading or writing for the life of me. I've literally used all study help I could find, I took numerous practice exams even ones from the ETS website, as well as utilizing Khan Academy Praxis help, I've attempted those two exams 8 times now, and I'm getting very discouraged. Is it possible to skip the core exams and just pass the subject and grade level exams (in my case, biology 7-12th grade) and get a state teaching license?
