The Homeschool Buyers Co-op Proudly Presents...

The Homeschool Buyers Co-op is pleased to present a GroupBuy offer for the One Year Adventure Novel writing curriculum from award-winning author Daniel Schwabauer, founder of Clear Water Press.

Write A Novel in One Year!

The One Year Adventure Novel curriculum guides students (grades 8-12) step-by-step through the process of writing a structured, compelling adventure novel over the course of one school year.

We have had several conversations with Daniel Schwabauer, the creator of the popular One Year Adventure Novel, and we think it's fair to say that Dan is passionate about giving students the training and support they need to become proficient creative writers.

The One Year Adventure Novel curriculum comes with a host of support programs (online forum, contests, live webinars, access to workshops, etc.) to guide your student through the process of creating his or her very first novel. (See below and on his website for more details.)

We love the concept and, based on the numerous member testimonials and additional testimonials and reviews published on Dan's website, we think Dan's program might provide just the knowledge, structure, and support your student needs to undertake what could be one of the greatest accomplishments of his or her homeschool years!

I purchased this curriculum for my 14 year old daughter, who had the germ of an idea for a novel. She has been thrilled with it, and looks forward every week to working on her novel. She has not yet used the online resources, but has been quite happy working independently on it, with the helpful input of parents and friends. I have told many other homeschooling friends about this, and will continue to do so. Being able to tell a story well is essential in so many types of communication, and the One Year Adventure Novel helps teach kids to t...(more)

OMGosh! "This is the most awesome course ever!" so says my teenage son. He is really turned on and engaged with this course. I had my doubts as to whether he would actually do the program. Now he asks to do it and he's writing!!!!

This is a superior product. Everything needed is there in the package. The DVD lessons are short (about 15 minutes each) and entertaining. The textbook reinforces the lesson from the video and the workbook has the student put into practice what they just learned. What the student writes in the workbook ...(more)

We are truly enjoying the One Year Adventure Novel. What a great way to engage students! Our 14-year-old is writing very interesting and creative scenes, as he learns the elements of a quality novel. The DVD presentations are top-notch, and the teacher's disc is very helpful. And we LOVE the full length novels included for our reading enjoyment. We recommend it to all budding writers, as well as reluctant writers.

I had subscribed to receive Homeschool Buyer's Co-op emails before the summer. When OYAN came across, I read about it aloud to our 13-year old son.

He is a reluctant academic, doesn't do poorly in school but just doesn't love it. His enthusiastic response was all I needed. He loves to watch movies (what teenager doesn't!), read books and has a wild imagination with lots of ideas. He exclaimed an excited, "Yes! get that! That sounds awesome!" He was excited at the possibility of publishing something (and becoming famous!). I haven't o...(more)

Regardless of the career path, writing well will pave the way. One Year Adventure Novel provides an all-inclusive writing program in a fiction landscape that builds writing skills and confidence. The side benefit is also a greater analytical skill when attacking literature. Easy to use, allows independent study, instructs parent clearly on how to grade and work with the student.
Erin L, Co-op Member
My daughter is enjoying this course very much. The video lessons are engaging and interesting. The assignments are fun and take as much or as little time as the student wants to put into them. The skills taught are valuable for any student whether they actually finish the novel or not.
Allison T., Co-op Member
This is the most creative and unique writing curriculum I have seen in my 15 years of homeschooling. Using the One Year Adventure Novel, my kids were able to get their ideas out of their heads and onto paper--something that was always a challenge for them. Love the program! Highly recommend it, even wrote a review about it on my homeschooling blog arkansashomeschoolers.com
Lynda Altman, Co-op Member
My 14 year old daughter loves the program, although we've only been doing it for a few months. She enjoys the video lessons and how the program is organized, especially the specific instructions and worksheets that lay the foundation for the writing to come. She says she already feels prepared for writing her first novel!
Liz S., Co-op Member
This truly is an AMAZING program. My oldest was a reluctant writer, but she became so excited about writing after receiving the curriculum two years ago that she zipped through it in three months without any mention of doing writing from me. She has since written multiple novels and is constantly on the prowl for ideas for her novels. There is also an online forum where the kids in the program can have their work peer reviewed. Once on the forum, there are also regular webinars (for free) covering various writing related topics and an incre...(more)
Amy Y, Co-op Member
My son has always wanted to write a novel and this class is perfect for getting him to actually sit down and get his thoughts on paper. He is learning exactly what he needs to define for his characters and the actual writing will be so much easier after he figures out all the pre-writing details. The workbook and lectures are invaluable in this process.
