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.

My family absolutely loves the Brave Writer Arrow subscription we purchased from the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op! The guides are so well written and easy to use and I love the book choices. I was not at all confident in my ability to teach language arts until I found these guides.
Jessica H, Co-op Member
Homeschooling has been an adventure with lots of curriculum choices. I have found that I love to learn right along with my children. Over the years I have purchased many writing programs, but I found there was always something missing. I found what I have been looking for with Brave Writer's The Writing Jungle. I have learned that it is so important to sit down and work side by side with my children. It's so easy to hand them a workbook and walk away to clean the bathroom, do the dishes, read a book, or do what I want to do. But the pas...(more)

We absolutely love Brave Writer! I have two boys in 5th and 7th who have very different attitudes about reading and writing comprehension. Through the Arrow and Boomerang lessons, they've both flourished and found new tidbits that have helped them.

We also use Partnership Writing and Faltering Ownership. For my younger son, who loves to chat and discuss rather than write, it has been so wonderfully eye-opening! The different techniques Brave Writer suggests have led to less tears and great progress. For my older son, Faltering Owner...(more)

I have really enjoyed the easy to implement lessons. The lessons are designed to be short. I like this program and I highly recommend using the Arrow along with the age appropriate writing .
Mrs. K, Co-op Member
After years of trying different writing programs, I was thrilled to find this one. I got The Writer's Jungle, which is chock-full of reassuring common sense.

(For instance, "good" writing -- with a topic sentence, a list of facts and a conclusion -- is often dry and boring. A better goal is to assist one's child in learning to observe keenly and to communicate her unique experiences clearly.)

The Writer's Jungle also includes what my two children (male 12 year old reluctant writer, female 10 year old enthusiastic writer) have fou...(more)
L. Vicario, Co-op Member
I really like the Brave Writer concept, I first I was hesitant to print out the whole book as it is over 200 pages, and I thought I could just read it off the screen, but I found I needed the paper in hand for me to be able to read it. Julie has tons of tips to help when you hit this situation or that. My biggest challenge was/is to take the time for me to go through this great resource and then to get the kids working on this. Everything I've tried with my kids may at first be "mom why do we have to do that" but after we try it once, the ki...(more)

I knew I needed a different approach with my 8 year old. A friend suggested Brave Writer. I love that I was able to download a large amount of material for FREE from her website. I was able to "try before I buy" with about a month's worth of product. When I did decide BW was for us, I was thrilled to have the discount at HBC.

After two months of casually using BW, my reluctant writer enthusiastically and SPONTANEOUSLY penned his first poem!

Grammar concepts that were "learned" and then immediately forgotten with our old workbooks a...(more)

Our family loves Brave-Writer! It is transforming our homeschool! It is more than a curriculum, it's a lifestyle that has injected the fun, whimsy, and love of learning back into our homeschool.
Amy, Co-op Member
My family loves Bravewriter! My kids ages 7 & 5 thoroughly enjoy the writing projects. We have found the Brave writer philosophy helps us in so many ways with our homeschool. Not only do we have time for real learning, but we are able to cultivate a peaceful and relationship nurturing homeschool environment. We truly love brave writer. We are using Jot it Down this year. I have purchased The Writers Jungle for next year to help its streamline things even more.
Pattie, Co-op Member
So far, we just started in September. I'm very happy with this writing program. My son,who doesn't like to write, has no complaints. That's a miracle. The author of this writing program sure does understand reluctant writers. We will definitely continue with this program.
