Traditionally program strategies such as special classes, resource rooms, and itinerant teaching have been employed to meet the unique needs of the emotionally handicapped child. Urban outdoor education is presented as an additional curriculum concept in this resource guide for elementary students. Since the outdoor education method centers on employing the resources of the school site, school community, and other local resources, all material in this guide is based on activities developed by teacher participants of the Special Study Institute and derived from a one block area in New York City. This block afforded such resources as urban renewal, vacant lots, a public school, small stores, a nursing home, a subway entrance, and buildings of varied dates, construction, and architectural design--all of which may be generalized to other urban settings. Suggested activities, not meant to be comprehensive, are presented as specific examples from which other urban schools might pattern their curriculums. Each chapter constitutes an individual subject guide. Subject areas covered are: (1) Arts and Crafts; (2) Environmental (Sensory) Awareness; (3) Language Arts; (4) Mathematics; (5) Physical Education; (6) Science; (7) Social Studies; and (8) Sounds and Movement. Individual bibliographies follow each subject area. (JC)
