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 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)

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)

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.

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)

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

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 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)
