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 11 year old son and I LOVE Cover Story. After completing a wonderful, rigorous 3-year IEW program, we wanted something to keep his skills up and broaden his creative skills. This was the perfect pick! The program is so easy to use, my son could do much of it independently, but the videos are so informative and entertaining that my daughter and I rarely let him view solo. He has written to and received a reply from a favorite author, and was a finalist in a limerick contest. The daily journal entries are a great way to make writing a posi...(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 son and I are really enjoying Cover-Story. My son is 6th grade and he is learning a lot. He is a reluctant writer but this curriculum is fun and laid out in a gentle way. We are excited to see the end product of the magazine he is putting together. He is already excited about the One Year Adventure Novel when he is in high school! We have shared our excited with many other homeschoolers.

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.

I got this for my Freshman in High School who is a reluctant writer. She and I bought felt the prospect of her making a magazine on the topic of her choice would make righting more fun.

It wasn't a total success but we aren't sorry we did this.

Part of the course is a journal (to more or less keep interest in writing and foster ideas) and the other is writing in various genres to produce a variety of material for the magazine.

My daughter was not interested in the journal writing at all. Actually, she didn't mind it TOO much, sh...(more)

We are about half way through this exceptional LA curriculum for middle schoolers, and I am most impressed! The daily video lesson (3x a week) is humorous and insightful, while the student lessons and writing assignments are engaging. Both my students and I really like that they will be producing a magazine over the course of a year, a magazine themed around a topic of their choice. Middle school is all about finding your passion, so learning to write about it is a great way to keep students interested.

We have only looked at the material but will be using it fully this week. My son, is so excited to get into cover story. We have friends that have started and their children are loving it. He is most excited to share his finished project with his friend.

Daniel Schwabauer's "Cover Story" curriculum is literally a God send. We have used a handful of different writing curricula in the past years. No matter what I looked for to help challenge and inspire my reluctant writers, writing time was often a time of drudgery, or even tears, for our children. Mr. Schwabauer's approach is fun, silly, even "cheesy" at times, which is perfect for our kids! Don't let that statement fool you though, my children have learned much in our first 3 weeks of the program, but even better, they have found joy in writ...(more)

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)
