Cathy MacPhail Learning Resources

Cathy MacPhail's fiction runs the gamut from fun action and adventure to gritty and challenging stories of teen struggles. Grass was voted the favourite book of 2010 by Scottish teens in the Scottish Children's Book Awards, and the spine-tingling Out of the Depths was shortlisted for the 8-11 category in 2012. Check out her books and you'll never struggle for something to grip your learners!

Gordon Fisher, PT English at Lochend High School, is a huge fan of Cathy's books and has set up a whole range of creative activities in the classroom based on the books. Check out his blog on writing poetry based on one of Cathy's books.
