Organizing Playdays and Large Group Activities.
Grosse, Susan J.
Practical Pointers, v2 n4 Oct 1978
The newsletter offers guidelines for conducting playdays or large group activities for handicapped students. Among the factors to consider when planning activities are total number participating, levels of physical and mental abilities, age span, sex, and assistance needs. Activities should meet the needs and interest of the students, include a game or sport with which students are already familiar, include new programs students like to try themselves or see others perform, not include sports or activities teachers considered inappropriate for their groups, and match ability levels represented in groups. Other considerations involve staffing, facilities and equipment, refreshments, transportation, lead up and followup, scheduling, onsite preparation, publicity, cohesiveness, first aid, and financing. Appended are sample schedules. (SB)
