Homeschool Buyers Co-op

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)

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)

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)

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!

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 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)

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

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 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)
