Social awkwardness is a part of life, especially for young people as they grow and change during adolescence. This lesson helps to break the stigma of talking about social awkwardness, or ‘cringe’ moments, and supports students to identify practical strategies to help them navigate social awkwardness.
Students understand what social awkwardness is and identify practical strategies they can use in social settings when feeling awkward.
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to:
- recognise the different feelings and behaviours associated with social awkwardness
- identify practical strategies they might like to use when feeling awkward in social settings
- reflect on the effectiveness of any strategies they have used to navigate social awkwardness, both inside and outside of the classroom.
