Homeschool Buyers Co-op

A Complete Writing Curriculum for Your Entire Homeschool Career...

The ability to write clearly and persuasively is an essential skill in every profession. It is also one of the hardest to teach. That's why the Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to present GroupBuy savings for writing curriculum and online classes from Brave Writer, a popular writing curriculum developed by and for homeschoolers.

By and For Homeschoolers...

Brave Writer's creator, Julie Bogart, and her team of writing coaches are uniquely qualified to help you develop your child's writing talent because they are themselves professional writers AND homeschoolers. They begin with a core belief that your child is a tremendously interesting person with something interesting to say. Their mission is to give you the tools, training, and confidence you need to be a great writing coach to your children.

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.

I love this program! It's a lot of reading, but it's like listening to a friend who gives you tips that are fun and really work and reminds you to relax and enjoy parenting.

The whole family is benefiting!

We started are new school year on May 1st. I decided to change things up this year and finally add Brave Writer to my school. Seriously I get what all the rave was about, It has been an amazing month so far, The kids love Poetry tea time. I see their eyes light up when it comes to their stores or writing projects. I am already noticing small changes in the kids each time we do something new. Please get this program I promise it will be the best choice ever made for you and the kids. You will also love the Facebook groups for Brave writer along...(more)

Julie has so many great ideas and my kids, boys ages 4, 7, and 9 love them all. We work together as a team to finish the projects and live a Brave Writer lifestyle! It takes away all the guesswork and frustration over writing in our homeschool.
Sam Kelly, Co-op Member
This is the best purchase I have ever made for our homeschool. I purchased The Writer's Jungle and have begun to implement the suggestions and ideas. My very reluctant writer has begun to request time to write! We have yet to fully implement the program (we're moving that direction slowly), but I feel we have made more progress in the last month than in our previous years of schooling combined. We also purchased Partenership Writing, but have only begun to use it. I am excited about the ideas it contains. I wholeheartedly recommend this curricu...(more)
Jennifer, Co-op Member
We LOVE Brave-Writer. All 3 of my kids benefit from the lifestyle, none fear or avoid writing at all, and all test well above grade level for both reading and writing. It IS a lifestyle, not a curriculum, per se, so don't expect lesson by lesson instructions. My kids love the project/unit suggestions, the poetry teas, and the small bits of copywork. we've used it for 2 years now (everything from Jot it Down to the Arrow), and love it a LOT.

Brave Writer is unlike any language arts program I'm ever seen or used. It is a strong combination of Charolette Mason and Ruth Beechick--using "living books" in a practical, common sense, and fun way. Brave Writer teaches kids to write first, establishing a love for writing, then slowly incorporates the mechanics and rules of writing into their peices. All other language arts programs I've used start with mechanics (grammar, formats and formulas) first, forcing the child's writing to fit the formula (a paragraph has 5 sentences; a topic sen...(more)

I was at a total loss at how to teach my son how to write. My personal weakness is language arts so this subject was stressful and overwhelming. I had tried many different programs but only succeeded in teaching my son how to dislike writing like I did. There are many good programs for grammar and spelling but the writing side ahrrrr, hair pull, cry, stress, stress, lets just forget it - oh wait- we can't!!

Enter Brave-Writer and what a complete change. I read The Jungle Writer - FANTASTIC!! It is easy to understand, relatable, rea...(more)

I bought The Wand to use with my nearly 6 year old son. I liked the idea that the work centered around different books, and I love the general Brave Writer philosophy. We have so far completed the first issue of Level 1 (which uses Hop on Pop and Fox in Socks). I feel like my son is learning from it, and he enjoyed the books, particularly Fox in Socks (I think he liked hearing my tongue get twisted!). You are encouraged to deliver short lessons and it's very focused, so I know exactly what I need to do, and I think, being short, he doesn't have...(more)

We love Brave Writer! To date we have implemented the BW style copywork, Poetry Tea Times, BW style editing, Word Game and several writing activities. I hear a lot of people who are confused about what exactly BW is, and it's so hard to explain it, really. I have started simply pulling out the Writer's Jungle and letting them flip through it. So far every person who's seen it has went out and bought it. :)
Kristy, Co-op Member
We love Bravewriter. If you are looking for open and go, worksheets or a step by step writing program this will not fit the bill; however, if you are looking to help your child to develop their own unique voice and become a dynamic writer whose work is engaging and interesting to read then this may be the program for you. If you are uncertain what this program is about just visit the Bravewriter website, listen to Julie's podcasts and read her blog, you'll learn the philosophy behind the program so you can decide for yourself if the Bravewrit...(more)
