Centering on...Using Art Activities To Enrich the Curriculum for Special Education Students.
Pliskin, Ellen, Ed.
This book presents lesson plans, developed by special education teachers and graduate students, which use art across the special education curriculum. Preliminary information offers general guidelines for using the lessons and describes characteristics of students with disabilities, with emphasis on students with emotional disturbances. The lessons are designed to develop the following skills in students with emotional handicaps and learning disorders: visual perceptual skills, tracking, scanning, visual analysis, visual memory, visual closure, visual imagery, and affective skills. Lesson plans are in a standard format containing the following 12 basic elements: topic, aims, instructional objectives, behavioral objectives, vocabulary/terms, motivation, development, intercurriculum application, materials, value/assessment, homework, and references. Lesson plans are grouped by curriculum areas including computers, English, mathematics, reading, science, social skills and communication skills development, social studies, and writing. Also provided are a list of helpful agencies and resources (many in New York City), a bibliography of 15 items, a list of the teacher participants, an index by curriculum area, and a list of New York City Teacher Centers.
