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!

My reluctant writer has agreed to work on his writing over the summer - only if I allowed him to use the One-Year-Adventure-Novel... He's involved in the proces and seems to look forward to it. That says a lot in our family!

In the words of my daughter and two sons who are using OYAN for the current school year, this is the best English curriculum ever! Though all three were formerly reluctant writers, my teens are now joyfully engrossed in creating their first novels while independently honing their writing skills; amazed, I am enjoying the ride. Also, equally amazing as their writing development is the depth of understanding that OYAN has brought to my family's appreciation and understanding of English literature. Dinner table discussions will never again be the ...(more)

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.

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.

Please note we are currently working 3 chapters a week and are on chapters 1-18 as of this testimony.

In general I like how the curriculum is laid out. It's very little work on my part, other than encouraging them. This is a blessing for our 'too busy' household.

The greatest benefit I have found is my eldest, (17 with Asperger's) who has immense difficulty writing anything, has been regularly completing his workbook assignments. While it is still not near as easy for him to get his thoughts and ideas down as his 14 year old brother, ...(more)

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)

My sons and I love to write and have already used a few lessons from this fantastic program. Beyond the creativity of writing, there is also the 'science' behind novel writing - the structure, plot development, creating real-to-life characters - this can be difficult to teach, but OYAN tackles this with ease. The lessons are easy to use and understand, there is a video and workbook to make learning easy. My kids look forward to each lesson and enjoy using their new information developing our novels. In addition to this program, OYAN offers ...(more)

My 16 year old loves to write and has been begging me for a couple of years to buy the OYAN; so I was really excited to see it available, at a discounted price, through Homeschool Buyers Co-op.

My daughter loves the program, although following directions isn't something she is used to for creative writing. Although we have used writing curriculum and AP English Lang & Comp, we have never purchased a product specifically designed for writing a novel. I believe this product is unique in that it really takes you through all the steps necessary ...(more)

My son has rarely been what you would call an enthusiastic writer (although he can write well when he puts forth effort). However, he is very excited about writing his own novel and loves using the One Year Adventure Novel curriculum! My daughter can't wait to use it herself and is hoping to try out their new middle school curriculum next year.
