When my daughter was in 8th grade she used Cover Story and she LOVED it! We have been working with the great folks over at Clear Water Press for years. They also publish One Year Adventure Novel and Byline ( both 8th-12 grade). They have a brand new FREEBIE that I am pleased to share with you.
Daniel Schwabauer is an awesome teacher; my daughter loved his DVD writing course Cover Story. I have no doubts that this book will be incredible too.
Curiosity Saved the Cat is a short, story-based journey through 34 years of teaching. It’s the core of what I believe we can do as educators to inspire the next generation and instill a love of learning (and of writing) in our students. And yes, it’s really free.
Why free? Because Mr. Schwabauer thinks it’s vital that we rethink how we’re teaching our kids. He wants each of his students to fall in love with learning.
And that involves a four-step process that any homeschool family can bring to their classroom–but which most of us have been taught to ignore.
