I was an English major from a family of English majors, and yet, Bravewriter is the only curriculum I buy—because it’s SO good. I always find something to discuss that I might not have thought of on my own. I love to hear how the children talk about books as we read, and some of that is from my natural big juicy conversations, but some of it is clearly from the Arrows.
