Kimberly has given excellent advice. You do not have to make him do all of the written work that is assigned if that is the problem. My only other suggestion is that you approach it from a spiritual ...

Evan-Moor covers much more than Map Skills. There is a map in each lesson. You do need the teacher's edition because it has all of the information to pass on to the student before the student comple ...

Mamacrow's response is excellent. Also, you say she understands all of the concepts and gets the answers right. I would suggest that you cut down on the number of problems. Have her do odd or even. ...

Voyages in English does jump around because they have each part of speech in a separate section, nouns, pronouns, verbs, etc. You can't teach the noun as a direct object of a verb if the ...
