done.I like it.
It is good to know how we can help our students through this theory of needs.
Maslow's Hierarchy is impressive, however it would be difficult for a teacher to access all the stages. For example, Physiological needs. How is it possible for teacher to know if students have been eating sufficiently or not? Perhaps teacher can only advise students to eat adequately. Same goes for "Esteem".
Maslow's theory talks about needs that are essential and yes, many people procrastinate learning English until it really becomes a necessity in their jobs and life.
The Maslow Pyramid is perfect for the teachers to recognize the level of needs of every student.
I agree with this Maslow's hierarchy of needs. It is true! especially in the developping country
The pyramid of Maslow's hierarchy of needs to me does have some validity.It's a good blueprint for instructions to follow to outline their lesson plans.
One of the challenges in learning is motivating people to achieve their potential. Abraham Maslow explained the foundation of motivation in his hierarchy of needs model. Maslow stated that human motivation is governed by an order of needs. Only when the lower level of needs are met does a person have a desire to fulfill the needs of the next level. Understanding this hierarchy will help ESL instructors to create effective lesson plans.
Physiological needs are food, water, and sleep. ESL learners must have these needs met in order to be receptive to instruction. For example, if learners come to class without eating breakfast, they will not have the energy they need to concentrate. As a result, they would not fully participate in the lesson and won't learn as much as they could have.
The safety needs of the model are the need to feel secure and safe as well as the need to feel unafraid. ESL instructors can fufill this need by creating a class atmosphere that is accepting and unthreatening.
Social needs include the desire for family and friends. These needs can be met in an ESL classroom through group learning activities that help learners to build a rapport.
This category concerns both self-esteem and the need to be highly regarded by others. ESL teachers can meet this need by complementing students on their progress.
Self-actualization is the desire to meet one's full potential. ESL instructors can help satisfy this need by encouraging students to apply and continually develop their new knowledge and skills.
