Relating Outdoor Education Concepts to Teachers of Emotionally Handicapped Children and Youth - Long Island Area - March 10, 1973.
Hartman, Bertha
The inability of the emotionally handicapped youngster to respond appropriately to sense stimuli is shown by cluttered, inaccurate, or aggravated reactions. For him, school is full of frustrations and failures. He must be provided with relevant motivational and pleasurable learning activities to interest him long enough for teaching to take place. Activities should emphasize extending the quality of observation and the increased development of sensory awareness through directed use of the 5 senses. The out-of-doors can be used as a laboratory for increasing sensory sensitivity while the classroom can be a place for orientation, teaching, and evaluation. Some language arts activities for the out-of-doors and the classroom are listed in this paper. Activities overlap from one area to another. (NQ)
