Homeschool Buyers Co-op

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)

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.

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.

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)

As a former high school teacher, I am very impressed with this writing class and especially with the results. I love listening to the lessons as I follow along reading my daughter's work on her first novel. The lessons are truly fun! Yes, I really mean it - they are fun. The organization and work progression is so well done that I'm even inspired to begin writing a novel myself. My other daughter is using Byline at the same time. Both are well worth the price and we plan to purchase the follow-on courses - they are that good!

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)

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 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 highly recommend the One-Year-Adventure-Novel (OYAN). It is so enjoyable that my daughter would do this course only--and not her other school subjects--if I let her. Not only is OYAN fun for my students, but it is also easy for me as the home school teacher to keep up with and grade. Compared with other writing curricula, OYAN stands as a substantial, academically rigorous, genre-specific, practical, skill-building course. In the past both my students have excelled at developing language arts and composition skills through courses from the ...(more)

My reluctant writer teenage son is loving the One Year Adventure Novel course! He's working steadily through the program and already talking about using the sci-fi program when he finishes.
