“Thank you for your amazing drama experience and workshop presented at the 2015 USF CLiCK Conference. In your session you were able to demonstrate exactly how drama expands reading comprehension and alters students’ experience with text. The workshop was perfectly structured and you scaffolded each activity to support the learning of all who participated."
Jenifer Jasinski Schneider, PhD, Director, USF CLiCK Conference
“The drama was a great opportunity for the children to get up and do something. I've done drama with English before, but not with science and I think that's awesome! ”
Kay, Year 4 teacher
"Margaret brought science alive for our Year 4 children today when they explored the digestive system. Children of all abilities could explain and demonstrate their understanding using correct scientific vocabulary. A fabulous lesson which we would enthusiastically recommend!"
Clare, Y4 teacher, Holy Family School, Coventry
“I have participated in a literacy conference session led by Margaret where we used drama to work through problem areas in our own teaching—and I still reflect on the powerful insights we gained in the process. Drama integrates body and mind in ways other activities and teaching strategies cannot. ”
Anne W. Anderson, University of South Florida

Learning science through drama...
"I enjoyed being a piece of food. I enjoyed squishing through the small intestines. I found it funny when we all came out as waste. I learnt that the small intestine was bendy"
