  • 6. In The ClassroomS As a teacherto help encourage the children to feel good about themselves would involve an understanding of ones strengths and weaknesses, and a belief in ones ability to improve.S We are showing the learners how learning is not an end, but a means to progress towards the pinnacle of self-development, which Maslow terms Self-actualization„ where a child learns because he or she is inwardly driven, and derives his or her reward from the sense of achievement.S These intrinsic rewards are rewards from within oneself, rather like a satisfaction of a need. This accords with the humanistic approach, where education is really about creating a need within the learner and instilling within the learners‟ self- motivation.
