My 7th grader has been enjoying Cover Story very much. He's a reluctant writer but Daniel's videos have a good mix of humor and writing instruction, so it makes writing more interesting for him. The assignments seem to be broken down into manageable parts, without being simplistic. My son is easily bored but the lessons are interesting and his writing skill is progressing very nicely. He had great fun with the poetry lessons! We will definitely be using this for my other kids, and looking into Mr. S's other curricula.

Cover Story is a love, love curriculum! I love it because I don't have to "teach". The kids love it because it is cool and different and fun! I highly recommend this to everyone.

My 12 year old son loathed writing anything more than a paragraph and it was a process akin to pulling teeth whenever it was requested that he become more descriptive in his writing. I sought out new curriculum each year and nothing seemed to stir him to want to write...UNTIL Cover Story!

Now, he requests that the first "class" he completes for the day be Cover Story. He actually looks forward to doing the assignments and he doesn't mind taking the extra time to be creative and descriptive. He actually shows off his completed assignme...(more)

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)

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 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 answer to prayer. My son loves to read, but he struggles with writing. We had almost given up on finding a writing program that would work for him, until we found Cover Story. The video lessons are fun and intriguing. He has participated in the writing contests and webinars that are offered with the program, and there are no more tears over writing. More difficult/challenging assignments are spread out of the course of several weeks and allow time for him to work through the assignment step my step at a pace that works fo...(more)

We Love Cover Story!! Our son is in 7th grade. And even though we have only begun the program, he is already becoming a braver, more expressive writer. He looks forward to the videos, the workbook, AND the journal writing. He is facing daily writing with optimism for the first time...EVER. This program has been an amazing find!

We are so happy with Cover Story. My son is a very reluctant writer, so this is perfect for him. Our whole family enjoys watching the videos and my son doesn't complain about doing the workbook lessons. This is HUGE for us. The humor is just right and perfect for him (and me). I get no complaints about doing our writing lessons and think that slowly, perhaps, writing might become something he can consider at least a little enjoyable. Thank you!

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.
