To help students understand and prioritise their future thinking, We give students a range of aspirational cards which they have to order to create their must haves down to the not bothered. They range from having the latest gadgets,working your way to the top, a healthy lifestyle to giving and recieving love. There is often a surface level of materialism at first, but groups all agree on a list of priorities which very much supports maslow‘s work. After this discussion, students reflect on their own needs and wants to see what is really important to them. Students are allowed to take 5 things with them in their ‘Shopping Basket of Contentment’. They then have to analyse what kind of person this makes them and start to think about what they will need to do to bridge the gap between where they are now and what they want to become.
