    I agree with everyone. See most teachers and others think since it's online program it'll be easy and believe you can always search the answers. When first starting out with Penn foster, yes. But later on no, I even had sever AP World History Students, wait, with a GPA of 4.00 that says this is even difficult for them.

    No one said you had to give them all the answers, but the student simply need help. Give him tips an locations where to find the answer. Also no one said you had to answer all of them. Ms. Sue I hope your not a teacher.

  • world history -

    Dude, I can't find anything either. And when I thought I was finally done with this section, I burned my book and skipped around it with joy. Days later I received a call stating that I failed the History and had to retake the tests.....Too bad I didn't have a book to look in and none of these ignorant questions are on the internet (if they are, they are not easy to find.) People come here for help (including answers) So WHY DON'T YOU HELP THEM?

  • world history -

    I am sorry. I am taking the classes for Penn Foster also. But I have to agree with Mrs. Sue because If you need that much help maybe you should contact the school and tell them that you need help. I posted up for help on one question and posted up for somebody to check my answers and Mrs. Sue helped me by agreeing or disagreeing with my answers. She did not go and say. The answers to all of my questions, if she had what would I be learning by somebody telling me all the answers.
