Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to see how teachers and special educational teachers work with pupils who they perceive to be shy. What caracterizes a shy pupil and what are the difficulties in the learning enviroment? I also wanted to study what is important in planing,implementation and assessment when it comes to shy pupils. I have conducted eight qualitative interviews with teachers and special educational teachers. They all worked with pupils between the ages of 7 and 12. The data was analyzed from three special educational perspektive, a compensatory-, a critical- and a dilemma perspective. The curriculum emphasizes the communication skills which makes school extra challenging for shy pupils.Despite the curriculum the respondents showed an uncertainty how to respond to a shy pupil.They had different opinions about how to work with them and how much they can be challenged. They also had different opinions about what caracterizes a shy pupil. But the interviewed teachers agreed that the teacher and the learning enviroment is the most important thing for making a shy student successfull in school. Regular dialouges between teacher and shy pupil were also showed as an important factor while working with shy pupils.
