Learn Through Drama Welcomes You


About Me

Teacher, Author, Drama Practitioner

My name is Margaret Branscombe and I work as a literacy intervention teacher and drama practitioner. I am involved with a range of educational cross-disciplinary and drama based community projects. I have a PhD in Literacy Studies and a research interest in using drama across the curriculum. My book, 'Teaching Through Embodied Learning' (Routledge, 2019) describes the application of drama with non-fiction texts. I am a member of the United Kingdom Literacy Association and the National Association for the Teaching of Drama. If you have a project that you think we could collaborate on, please contact me.
