Homeschool Buyers Co-op

To achieve this mission, Julie has developed a comprehensive writing curriculum that spans the entire K-12 range with a rich set of options, including home study courses, language arts programs, language arts plans, and classes taught online by Julie and the other professionals on her team.

We are using Brave Writer's Partnership Writing program this year, and my boys LOVE IT! They are 9 and 12, and have been reluctant writers in the past ~ but Brave Writer enchants them into loving writing. This program has taught me how to turn my home into a language-rich environment, and the writing my boys are producing is better than ever -- with zero tears!

I saw some things from Julie Bogart on a forum I subscribe to and some of her periscopes and blog, so I was THRILLED to find the materials on the co-op for a discount!
We are just in the early stages of using them, but I feel like the Brave Writer "Lifestyle" is how I want to teach and operate for our homeschool! The shift mentally has been really exciting and freeing for me, and I can already see how it is going to foster a culture of delight in language for us!
We are using Jot It Down to get started, and I'm really enjoying the rich...(more)

We love Bravewriter! I have to say, this program is working out extremely well for us. This is my first year homeschooling and I have a 6 yo daughter and 9 yo son. My son is really struggling with writing and I was getting frustrated with expectations of 4th grade essays and writing topics that were way beyond him. So at Christmas I researched new programs and found BraveWriter.

It was a real paradigm shift for me to read Julie's teachings. She opened a new door into a more realistically paced world of writing for my children and myself. ...(more)

We use BraveWriter copywork (Arrow & Boomerang),the Wand, Jot It Down, and The Writer's Jungle. My oldest also took an online class 2 years ago. We have never been disappointed with a BW product. As a matter of fact, I like the curriculum so much for my older kids that I started my 7-year old off with The Wand and Jot-it-Down from the very beginning. My kids (all boys) enjoy this approach and I find it to have an "organic" feel. I'm thankful that I found BraveWriter early on so that my philosophy for teaching writing could be shaped by thi...(more)

My boys and I absolutely love The Arrow from Brave Writer. We choose one of the books each month and complete the corresponding copy work, grammar lessons, and literary elements. Because all of the work is related to the book that we are reading together, they are much more willing to do the work. My kids are reluctant writers, but I can tell that they have definitely learned a lot from working with the Brave Writer program. An example: in their geography fair presentations, they made sure they had a good "opening hook" to get the crowd interes...(more)

We love Brave Writer!! Both my 9 and 11 yr old are enjoying learning about writing and grammar in this interactive and easy to use program based on books they love. Thanks for providing this content at a discount!!
Michele Taluba, Co-op Member
I couldn't be more grateful for the help and advice that Julie at Brave writer has given me. I bought 'The Writer's Jungle' and downloaded it to read. I got the shock of my life when I saw it was the size of a reem of paper and couldn't bring myself to wade through it, no matter how hard I tried. My own dyslexia meant that it just all seemed to much, then when I went onto their website it seemed even more overwhelming. I must reiterate this is due to my own feelings of inadquecy and learning differences. I decided to write asking for help and I...(more)

My children, myself and even my husband have all taken part in Bravewriter online classes over the past 10 years. We have all enjoyed them and I think are better writers because of them. For me one of the best things is the help given by the teachers to improve a piece of writing. I have not found anything else out there like Bravewriter. I have received great value for my money and highly recommend the classes and Julie's written products.
Catherine Grant, Co-op Member
My son and I signed up for the KidsWrite Basic class. It was very refreshing to take off my hat as parent/teacher/coach/supporter/nagger and just be my kid's partner and encourager. The teacher gave excellent feedback and my kid looked forward to reading what she wrote and put out extra effort to focus on writing. He did not love writing going into the class and he still does not, but now he feels much more confident and excited about it. He also produced a really amazing piece of writing. I'd take another class in the future without a dou...(more)
E. Davis, Co-op Member
BraveWriter has inspired me again with regards to writing. I've made some radical changes to our day, and I'm looking forward to the coming months.
