Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Students will construct multiple scenes using storytelling and improvisation. Students will portray a believable character in an improvised scene. Students will learn how blocking and direction shape a piece. Students will perform their devised scenes in front of an audience practicing proper projection. Core Group Rubric: CLIMB’s Actor-Educators and the core group teacher will rate the students’ performance during each workshop. CLIMB’s goal- 80% of categories rated as excellent. Student Survey: Goal - 90% of students say actors were “really good,” 85% say they are more likely to stand up to someone who bullies. Teacher Evaluation: Goal - teachers give the value of CLIMB’s program a 3.85/4. Teachers rate the Actor-Educators’ portrayal of their characters 3.90/4. 98% want CLIMB to return.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Students participated in discussions in their classrooms, stemming from the performances centered on bullying. As a result, they have an increased awareness about steps they can take to deal with bullying and to stop it. Teachers reported that the student actors who participated in the plays, dealt with real-life problem solving techniques, using the steps they had learned.
