Julie, of Julie Naturally, reviews Clear Water Press for students with learning differences
“When I found these writing programs, I couldn’t believe it. It was as though the author had read my mind! . . . Students learn how to not only write well, but how to write so people care. I was so thrilled that these programs aren’t about writing the college essay or the scholarly research paper. While students do learn about essays and longer works, the focus is on writing pieces that regular people can’t wait to read. And, students produce real writing projects—a novel, a magazine, or a newspaper.
“You see why Clear Water Press is perfect for special students? Real projects, stealth learning through professionally produced theatrical (but very educational) video lessons that teens love, and it’s taught by a real, award-winning author!
“I loved [these programs] so much, I wrote a whole blog post about it!”
Carrie Fernandez of Homeschool Giveaways
“The thing I love most about all of Clear Water Press curriculum sets is the amazing cinema-quality of the video lessons. After homeschooling for over a decade, I have viewed many curricula that includes video instruction and Clear Water Press’ DVD lessons are far superior to most that we have seen. Quite honestly, most other video lessons are cheesy, outdated, and bore my kids to tears. Not so with these sets!”
Cathy Duffy Reviews
“Wonderfully creative . . . The delivery and learning methods are so different that even reluctant writers are likely to enjoy the process.”
“Stories that students write in this course are likely to be much more sophisticated than one would expect from high schoolers since students learn about advanced techniques.”
“Byline is very creative. It draws students back into the historical past with intriguing stories and fascinating biographies of personalities. It then uses those effectively as springboards to essay writing. I expect that most students will very much enjoy this approach for learning to write essays.”
