The MacWrite Clan and Literacy Across Learning

To assist you and your students with inquiry-based learning, the school librarians in East Lothian introduce you to the MacWrite Clan. Together they form a research toolkit for students. You can use the whole kit with whole classes or individuals, or use single tools with whole classes or individuals – which ever suits your needs and the learners’ needs best.

There are 2 versions of the MacWrites. One is designed for secondary students, the other for primary students and those secondary students who need additional support.

Each version comes with additional materials to encourage students to become effective researchers. Usually this will be additional copyable resources. Some of these are materials created and used by the school librarians, some are from a pack produced by Aberdeenshire Libraries. You are free to copy and adapt these to suit your requirements. Please acknowledge either East Lothian or Aberdeenshire as the source when you do so. The MacWrites and the Aberdeenshire material are licenced under Creative Commons.
