Ronnae Pesce Posted over 1 year ago Make public speaking a part of our school curriculum from kindergarten onward. Yes, I agree with Fritzie that there is more presenting in the school curriculum these days. But what I'm suggesting is exactly what you have stated so elegantly and taht is all the associated skills that are required to be successful and comfortable at public speakingy. Just as being successful at math means starting with the basics of numbers I would like to see the same type of structured learning for the skills of public speaking. Because you're right, it involves all those other skills that will add value in many other areas. In regards to your last comment about a generation of students being taught to challenge the status quo, I say, what better legacy can we leave?
