Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, area students will be able to learn about American History through Storytelling and Music at the Civil War presentation. These same students will also be challenged to think about the possibility of following their dream of becoming an artist while watching Porcupine Creek (all members are under 20). All residents will be able to attend quality, affordable programs because of offering free tickets to students and providing quality programing in Clearwater County. 1. There will be a talk back session for students following the Civil War and Porcupine Creek presentation. 2. We will have 3x5 cards at tables following the concerts by Skalmusik and Sloughgrass that will ask for feedback on the presentation and to suggest groups they might like to have come to our area. 3. There will be a short evaluation collected during the performances at the Bagley Area School Performing Arts Center.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Many students asked questions about the instruments the band played. After the performance several students were found clustered on the floor of the hallways looking at the group play on YouTube. Students brought their parents to the evening performance at the High School's Performing Arts Center. Following the Stories and Songs of the Civil War presentation - the students acknowledged they learned a lot about the Civil War and how incredibly difficult it was to exist during the war.
