Gail JohnsonFort Kent, MEAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5There are no answers to the textbookSeptember 6, 2013Gail JohnsonFort Kent, MEAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This curriculum is supposed to be fun to interact online with the student but it has been a challenge to do so. We are using the book only as a reading source since we have no idea how to get teacher resources for it. The workbook is a good tool that follows the textbook to a certain degree with answers. Very frustrated with the publisher on this one.
