Language Arts.
Keener, Paul L.
Capitalizing on the resources available in an urban city block, this resource guide for the emotionally handicapped (K-6) presents a resource list and objectives and activities relative to teaching language arts (reading, English, listening, speaking, and writing). The resource list is comprised of approximately 150 physical facilities (e.g., buildings), functions (e.g., traffic), and resources (e.g., broken glass). Conceived as a beginning from which the teacher can creatively use his own urban environment, this guide identifies 92 objectives and accompanying activities. The scope of the objectives reveals a progression from simple recognition (sentence parts) to actual production (story writing), including such objectives as learning to spell, use reference books, read a newspaper, develop vocabulary, make comparisons, classify, dramatize, write letters. The accompanying activities emphasize sensory perception and utilization of the urban out-of-doors. For example, writing a biography of a fire hydrant is the activity which accompanies the objective of teaching children about personification. Writing a story about the street noises heard on a walk is the activity accompanying a creative writing objective. (JC)
