ClarisWorks Templates to Download

Linda J. Burkhart
(Macintosh version)

These are ClarisWorks templates that you may download and use in your classroom. If you don't have ClarisWorks, or if you are at a school where AtEase, or something like it, prevents you from downloading to your hard drive, you can use the .gif format. To use the .gif format, click on the picture to open a screen size copy. You may print it directly or copy and paste it into a draw, paint or word processing program.

Note: the .gif format will not allow you to use functions like spread sheet, data base, speech, and color text macros, but they can be used as models to create similar templates of your own in ClarisWorks or other integrated software.

This template allows the teacher or the student to quickly and easily change the color of selected text by holding the option and command keys and typing one letter. (When demonstrating to a group of students with a computer and projector, this saves time and allows the teacher to focus on the students and not on the computer.) This will be useful for helping students look critically at text. For example: colors may be use to highlight topic sentences, supporting points in persuasive writing, descriptive words, grammar errors, rhyming words in poems, metaphors, opinions vs. facts, etc. 

Use text from the Internet by copying it and pasting it into this template for evaluation. (Observe copyright laws by crediting text and using it only for specific educational lesson in your classroom.) Writings by other students are abundant on the web and these make great samples to evaluate. 

The template was made using Macros that were saved to this particular document.
