Should Drama and Speaking be made a Compulsory Lesson in Schools?

Drama is something that helps to entertain people. People can also entertain themselves by performing it when receiving a buzz or something across those lines. 

It also assists self-confidence and enables those who would not have before had the ability to speak to be able to do such a thing. Speaking in front of an audience itself is extremely useful. Many people will need to be able to speak in presentations and at work when they are older. To assist them, should schools make drama compulsory?

 

Some people, however, do not want to perform in anything that has anything to do with the stage? Do they need lessons at school for confidence boosters?

 

All of the discussion comes down to the ultimate question shown above. 

 

So please, have your say.

Yes, it should

I am of the distinct opinion that your debate proposal in favor of compulsory drama/speaking be taken in High School.

Every individual needs to be able to present their ideas in such a way that they can go about smoothly in Society as an adult and ably present themselves at job interviews, dates, and other social functions and professional arenas.

It takes practice to be adept at such things as speaking and body-language in public.

Therefore it should be mandatory in High School.

Yes absolutely. This will increase confidence no matter how small the parts are to start with. It is a tough world and taking part in drama no matter how small will be something positive a child can remember as they go on through life.

drama should be compulsory because drama lessons privatly are expensive & drama in schools gives you grades & confiendence even if you are shy . i was so shy in yr 7 & now im a actress & former drama teacher . At the school i taught at gsce drama was always popular & always full . Drama should be compulsory because some people dont even know what drama is i didnt untill i was in yr 7 . So drama SHOULD BE COMPULSORY!!!!!

No, it shouldn't be mandatory for a student to take either course....some people are just downright not into either of those things, so them being forced to participate is just not fair. There should be drama and speaking classes in schools, but people should be allowed to choose whether they take the class or not. It should not be mandatory. Some people are shy and do not want to be comfortable speaking in front of loud crowds and that's their choice.

They should remain optional subjects. You can't force a shy person to become more confident by making them participate in plays or perform speeches; if anything you'll scare them even more. Most of them will mumble through their lines like a moron, which will only make them look even more pathetic to themselves and their peers.

Shy people, especially kids, need to learn confidence at their own pace, and often in their own time. Giving kids ideas on how to become more confident and assertive is great - maybe in a Health class. Just the other day I saw a kids' worksheet that suggested various ways of saying "no" to someone without sounding rude. This sort of thing leaves information in their hands without trying to push them into using it.

Not everyone needs public speaking skills, and I'm not certain if standardized classes would be the best way to get students to learn the techniques, anyways.

Though, the idea really provides perfect enhancement of skills and building up confidence, I still against to it to become compulsory subjects. After all, public speaking works great for those in the same kind of professions as well as in entertainment industry, I bet not all student will have the same profession someday. If required, perhaps, maybe in time where the students can really manage the essence of becoming public speakers. But during the school ages, they must prefer those required curriculum instead. And if they wanted to, they just need to check on various agencies that offers improvisation and workshop training for public speakers. This site http://smartleesecreative.com/ is one of those reliable agency.

In every school, there is also a drama part which will tell the kids about the skill and many students take reports in drama art. You can make your own by using the https://assignmentman.co.uk/college-assignment-help/ These articles Is very helpful for you.
