Have you ever wanted to create greater unity in your classroom? Understand your student’s behavior on a deeper level so as to be able to manage the impact? Lead your classroom in a way that activates student learning and engages students. We will take a deeper look at Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and break it down to apply the concepts into our teaching and classroom management. We will discuss, Basic needs, Safety and Order, Sense of Belonging, Accomplishments, and Self-Actualization (looking at these from a different point of view, than Psychology 101). Come share your thoughts on how you create a sense of belonging in your classroom and get ideas from others. We will also be looking at the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People as it relates to Maslow’s Hierarchy and the reasons to implement these concepts into your classroom. Don’t worry though- this class is not lecture and “research heavy”, this is all about practicality in the classroom.
