This pyramid of Maslow's Hierachy of Needs sprung out to me. I liken Self Actualization to Tino Rangatiratanga. Tino Rangatiratanga being 'self governing'...students who can make decisions for themselves, they control their future and have power in the classroom/school/system. They have autonomy over their learning and are self determined.
If you read my last blog post, you will see that this framework doesn't present itself in my class as holding hands and talking about feelings - although we do hold hands for karakia at the beginning of the day and at the end, but through subtle (or not so subtle) integration of these thoughts and values throughout the day, across the curriculum.
