Integrative Arts Activities Guide for the Severely and Profoundly Handicapped.
Kohn, Marjorie; Williams, Jane
The guide suggests ways to incorporate arts activities into the curriculum for severely and profoundly handicapped students. The guide was developed through the work of visiting art teams consisting of artists in music, visual arts, dance/movement, and drama. The resulting guide was field tested at five sites. Activities are aimed at three levels of development: awareness, imitation, and self-initiation. For each developmental level, the activity's aim and description are included. Also addressed within each activity suggestion are materials needed, expansions, or additional ways to teach the activities, and modifications for adapting the activities for children with specific handicaps. Following general information on infusing art techniques into the curriculum, activity suggestions are presented for visual arts, dance/movement, music, and drama. An annotated bibliography and lists of consultants in each field are among appended materials. (CL)
