Prezi on William Glasser's Basic Needs.

This is an updated Prezi presentation of William Glasser's Basic Needs.  I wanted to do an updated version with a Northern theme. If you want to read how I meet the needs of students in the classroom, please see an earlier post here. Enjoy!


  1. Great Prezi!

    It makes me think about a quote I read today (courtesy of @mrwejr) from the Fraser Institute about teachers needing to stop blaming child poverty for low student performance, and instead look to their own teaching practices.

    Your presentation shows us again, that until basic survival needs are met, psychological needs just can't be fully addressed.

    Thanks for sharing,

  2. Thanks for your kind words, Tammy. Indeed, survival needs have to be met first. Otherwise, what you try to do without meeting survival needs is all for not.

  3. Neither agreeing nor disagreeing with the blog post itself, but try as I might to resist, I just couldn't let your comment go.

    Naught. The word is "naught", not "not". It's all for naught.


  4. Very nice examples of Glasser's Basic Needs. One thing that struck me was that most of the examples show collaboration as a means to meet and express the needs. This seems to also have a preventative influence on bullying, which feeds back to the survival and other needs.
