Fulfilling Needs

Students began this project by thinking and talking about the needs of their community and how these needs are met. They then learned about the needs people have in their lives of belonging, fun, power and freedom (Glasser’s internal needs). They talked about how they meet these needs in their lives in positive ways, and created PowerPoint presentations to share with the class.
