The paper analyses selected aspects of the communicative profile of the Polish high school classroom which is aimed, inter alia, at shaping individuals as communicators. The closed public space in question is approached with regard to the space navigation category of the theatre introduced by Puppel (2008). The theatre, in which all communicative forms are subject to escalation, is considered in the framework under analysis as the workshop of communication. The concept of the theatre as a way of navigating communicative processes occurring in space might be treated as a model to follow by teachers of high school subjects focused on developing students’ communicative skills. Consequently, the paper highlights the need of navigating the space of a high school classroom in the theatre-oriented way and makes an attempt to identify the extent to which the present processes of developing students’ communicative skills in the space of a high school classroom copy the theatre patterns.
