Cover Story has been a life saver for me.

My boys (12 and14) have been very reluctant writers, they just have never enjoyed it. I've spent a lot of time trying to find something that would spark the creativity I knew they had and Cover Story has done just that.

The DVD is fun, and makes sense. The approach to writing is step by step with an explanation of why you need to do certain things to make your writing engaging to the reader. There is humor and definitely keeps my kids paying attention. The journal is so cool! You will find there...(more)

I have great regard for the creator of Cover Story and love our new class with him! He has so much fun teaching about writing, and my dyslexic son hated to write before we began. He now writes the most creative sentences in small, easy-to-digest bits in the beautiful journal that comes with the program. He is learning grammar in an easy, common sense way, and it is beneficial for my student to be led into which theme he would like to write about, instead of giving him a theme. When he has ownership of his work, he works harder on it and enjoys ...(more)

My 6th and 8th grader are using this program, and it's a little tough for my 6th grader, who just came from public school and isn't used to working independently and has learning difficulties, but my 8th grader absolutely loves it. She started with the assignments, and now carries a notebook everywhere with her to write stories and articles whenever she has an idea or a moment. I have seen this program unlock a spark and a joy for writing that I hadn't seen before.

I will continue to use this program with my younger children as they come...(more)

Cover Story is a great combination of fun and learning. I have my two middle school children doing the curriculum together and I feel like they're both learning a lot from it.

My seventh grade student is enjoying Cover Story. He is learning how to write in different formats such as poems about Pokemon! :D I like that we don't argue about it being time to do a lesson.

My 6th grade son is really enjoying Cover Story. The videos are engaging and he is motivated to keep up with the schedule. There are a variety of writing projects, including daily journal writing and a workbook 3 times per week. Lots of room to be creative within guidelines. We recommend Cover Story!

I am so glad we ordered Cover Story as our Middle School Language Arts Curriculum for our 12 year old son, it seems as if it were made just for him, and now that I think about it, it probably was! Every part of this course is so thoughtfully and carefully planned to make it interesting and do-able for the student and enjoyable and easy to present for the teacher. We start with watching about a 15min. video that introduces the days lesson that usually has some funny blooper at the end which my son waits for, then we open up the student workbook...(more)

Cover Story is an excellent writing program. My daughter enjoys the lessons. It really sparks their creativity.

We are just finishing up this program for my 12 year old 7th grade daughter. Wow! We LOVED this program. There is no other curriculum, for any subject, that we have enjoyed more than Cover Story.

First I much appreciated the DVD instruction. This left my tween to be more independent which we both appreciated. The lectures are long but even with her mild ADHD, she sat through without complaint. She was engaged.

Second, it was brilliant to have the child pick their own theme for the magazine they create with this...(more)

We bought this for our 11 year old son. It is one of the best investments we have made. He used to hate writing, but Daniel's witty and humorous style of teaching has won my son over. His writing has improved dramatically, and he now wants to be an author. Would highly recommend it. Only concern I ever had was that in Journeling section the lecture topic was a bit intense for any younger siblings that may be around. But I would still strongly recommend this product.
