Ellen Pliskin, ed. New York: New York City Teacher Centers Consortium, 1991. Illustrated, 157 pp., softcover, $7.00, (212) 475-3737.

Subtitled Using Art Activities to Enrich the Curriculum for Special Education Students, this inexpensive publication is a compilation of thirty-seven lesson plans, with illustrations and explicit directions for their use in the classroom. Following a common format, the lessons are applicable from kindergarten through high school, with an emphasis on the integration with other subject areas, including computers. Since the lessons have been developed by different individuals, they range from overly directive to freely expressive. There are some very good art experiences in the mix, and teachers looking for additional ideas for their mainstreamed students will find this book of value.
