Both my teens are HS sophomores. My dd has always been the kid to keep her grades pefect. She works really hard to do so and she keeps up with all of her other activities. The one class she absolutley hates is History. She just hates it with a passion so of course its the class that gives a ton of HW My son not always been known to get awesome grades and has needed his sisters help many many times especially in math. However HIstory he beyond excells at. She's in a regular global history class this year and my son is in honors. the boy is a walking talking history book. If you have a question about history he can answer it off the top of his head with accuarte and much more detailed info that you will get from a history book or even a google search. Last night she was sitting down to do some history hw that she put it off as long as she could. I told her to just ask her brother for help. He will break it all down and explain it better than her teacher would and she would actually learn the material. Each HW question requires at least a 1 page response. THe passage in the text book is about a parahraph long. she wasted almost 2 hours before accepting the boys help. I just don't get it.
