Future societies and jobs will require critical thinkers using logic, making judgements, finding

relationships, and solving problems more than ever. Due to this, students will need to work

effectively and respectfully with diverse teams and will need to be more flexible to adapt themselves

to new situations, fast-developing technologies and societies. Because storytelling and drama

includes examples of events and characters from real life, they are perfect modelling for any

situation or people students may encounter with in the future. Through the integration of

storytelling and drama more into the designing of the lessons, not only the expression and language

proficiency of the students are excelled, but also the social interactions, problem-solving abilities and

creativity are flourished. Once the students broaden their perspectives, they will investigate matters

with new attitudes and will approach matters with the most effective solutions. Thus, they will

differentiate and make a positive change in any setting.
