Clear Water Press is one of my favorite homeschooling publishers to work with. Their products are outstanding! After homeschooling over a decade, most of the video curriculum we have tried was boring and cheesy. It’s no doubt very costly to put together a professional quality teaching video (I cannot even record my voicemail greeting without doing it 100 times!) but Clear Water Press really accomplishes this feat superbly!
They currently offer 3 curriculum packages and for a limited time only you can save $20.00 on the price of any curriculum set with coupon code CARRIE20 (ends 10/6/17)
Cover Story – A Writing Curriculum middle schoolers look forward to!
Cover Story takes middle school students – 6th through 9th grade – on a guided tour through the universe of Story. Through the process of creating the content for their own magazine in a single school year, students are led, step by step, on a fun, thought-provoking journey of exploration and creation. They write poems, short stories, non-fiction articles, letters, and many other short pieces.
They also learn to journal every day by following the creative structure of The Remarkable Journal of Professor Gunther Von Steuben. Along the way, they study not just a story’s form, but its execution.
The program covers poetry, short stories, creative non-fiction, interviews, blogs, letters, and much more in video lessons taught by a professional writer. As I mentioned above., my daughter LOVED this course. You can read our review here.
One Year Adventure Novel – Write a Novel in One School Year!
The One Year Adventure Novel writing curriculum guides students (grades 9–12) step by step through the process of writing a compelling, fully structured novel in one school year. Video-based and self-directed, it is ideal for home school students but also works in co-ops and schools.
Young writers, no matter how much natural talent and discipline they have, need training in understanding Story—what makes a story work. With honesty, passion, and humor, author Daniel Schwabauer takes students behind the scenes of novel-writing.
All I can say is…WOW! Never have I seen a more in-depth, engaging, challenging and altogether FUN writing curriculum than this one.
Byline – Student Journalists Cover Events from History!
Byline turns students into time-traveling reporters who practice journalism in the forgotten corners of history. Under the video tutelage of Mr. S., editor of the fictional Metropolitan World, your cub reporter will learn more than just how to write a terrific paper. By studying the work of great journalists, students uncover techniques of persuasion and propaganda that are widely used in media today. As students enjoy their reporter’s journey, Byline is equipping them with essay-writing skills!
We just received our set in the mail and it looks amazing! Watch for a review this fall after we dig into it!
