Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Felicia Rivera Megret

Shyness is the feeling of apprehension, lack of comfort or awkwardness, especially when a person is around other people. This commonly occurs in new situations or with unfamiliar people. Stronger forms of shyness are usually referred to as social anxiety. This results in a person becoming scared of doing or saying what they want to out of fear of negative reactions, being laughed at, humiliated or patronised, criticism or rejection. A shy person may simply opt to avoid social situations instead.

This module looks at characteristics of shyness, how we can identify shyness in ourselves and others, how we can help overcome shyness and help others to do the same.

We will explore

  • What is shyness?
  • What are some people shy?
  • How we can overcome shyness
  • How we can support others who are shy
  • How not to let shyness get in the way of making friends

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
