Literacy Across the Curriculum

Welcome to Arran High School's website for literacy across the curriculum. A one-stop-shop of resources for teachers (and of possible interest to parents).

The materials on this website are primarily designed to exemplify an understanding of standards of Literacy at Arran High School. Included are success criteria, tag sheets and exemplars of Levels for extended writing and persuasive talk across the curriculum.

Contents are constantly being developed. Please contact Matthew Reid at Arran High School if you would like to share resources for use on this website.
