Would this set allow for both an English and History high School credit?
User on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, I'm sorry but this course is a writing course. It is a one semester course and would serve as the writing (composition) portion of a high school English credit. You would also need literature, vocabulary, and perhaps grammar.
