My daughter who is 15 has been using this curriculum for 2 months now. She aspires to be a writer one day. So far the workbook has given her much to think about by showing her a story isn't just written from start to finish but it has detailed planning involved. This curriculum does a great job of laying out the questions that need to be asked in order to have a great story. We are excited to continue the program and see what she comes up with. The main issue that I have with the program is that it is a licensed and I can not share it with ot...(more)

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)

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.

I have purchased One Year Adventure Novel. I DO love O.Y.A.N.curriculum! We couldn't be happier with it, my son is producing something that he never would have without the excellent teaching in this curriculum. I have told several friends about our exciting English curriculum.

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)

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)

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)

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)

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.

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.
