Welcome to my Blog. My adventure in 21st century. - Melanie Hickerson

I was taught the Taxonomy of Cognitive Function with evaluation at the top. At that time I thought "Uh, no." Creativity, synthesis, actually making stuff was No. 2. I thought, "Okay, evaluators wrote this." This was rewritten in about 2001 or 2002 as computers rewrote the world. There are lots of people and books who have not yet made the change. Recently I learned of a Maslow Hierarchy of Human Needs that did not have "love" on the scale. Recently it was added at the 3rd spot. I don't know if Maslow had so much love in his life that they did not imagine life without it or if Maslow had a life without ever having experienced love and therefore did not miss it? I understand this is taught in schools. What will it take for the educators to notice this extraordinary fallacy.
