[Language Arts in the Out Doors].
Budd, Chris; And Others
Designed for instruction of emotionally handicapped children and youth, this guide presents concepts and activities relative to language arts and outdoor education. Resource materials developed by 10 different authors address various communicative skills. The first article lists 23 specific activities designed to enrich studies in reading, listening, spelling, and written and oral communication. Focusing on reading via the outdoor approach, the second article capitalizes on use of the environment to stimulate and motivate student expression. For example, 1 of 23 activities calls for a description of a cloud formation. Listing 26 activities, the third article emphasizes the important relationship between the outdoor experience and the desire and/or need to communicate. Devoted to the study of prose and poetry, the fourth article, among other activities, presents a step by step approach to writing haiku poems. Reading and writing are emphasized in the fifth article; activities include personification exercises, the development of a cinquain poem, a nature hike involving progression from words and images to full sentences, etc. The sixth article lists four detailed activities designed to utilize the five senses, instill creative expression, promote poetic expression, and provide recording opportunities. Articles 7-9 deal with multisensory development, presenting over 100 activity suggestions. The last article is devoted to phonetics and oral expression. (JC)
