[Music in the Out of Doors].
Duggan, Edward; And Others
Designed for instruction of emotionally handicapped children and youth, these seven articles offer activities and concepts relative to music and outdoor education. The first article presents 12 specific objectives and 40 specific activities (e.g., action singing using motions to describe words). The second article presents three basic concepts centering on the use of music in manmade and natural environments as an aid to the emotionally handicapped student in gaining access to his emotions. Emphasizing creative movement in the freedom of the outdoors, the third article presents 15 outdoor activities (e.g., taping favorite singers and presenting an outdoor "Woodstock" type concert starring students). The fourth article deals with nature sounds and presents detailed listening activities, rhythm observations (e.g., birds in flight), sound and movement games, and natural instrument creations (e.g., a coconut drum). Identifying the emotionally handicapped as "out of rhythm with the world and sometimes with themselves," the fifth article emphasizes rhythm discovery via listening, composition, and movement activities. Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, the sixth article focuses on sound sensitivity via listening, instrument making, and composing activities. The seventh article deals with creative dramatics used as an interdisciplinary curriculum tool and as a technique for developing free expression, socialization, and positive reinforcement. (JC)
