Why am I qualified to write these passages, writing prompts, and Common-Core aligned questions? Not only have I worked as a Language Arts Teacher for 30 years with a Highly Qualified Status, but I also have spent the last 15 years writing state and national assessments, such as the SATs, ACTs, and individual state assessments that align with the Common-Core standards. This includes grading, item writing, and passage writing for these assessments.
