Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The French component helps facilitate our student's understanding of other languages and cultures. The performance (and practices) promote an effort to improve, and helps to fulfill our students' ability to demonstrate creative expression by using the arts as a creative and universal means of communication. It showcases their understanding and application of the basic concepts of design, music, dance, and drama. The performances promote teamwork and the ability to share quality work. The concerts will be recorded. The teacher and class review it and evaluate their learning targets and goals. Goals include concert demeanor, audience response, musical quality, and quality of French. The quality of French includes knowledge of the language, memorization, language accuracy, and musical accuracy. In addition, a survey will be sent to all families via survey monkey asking them to evaluate the concert based on the goals listed above.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The outcome of this activity was providing an opportunity for many people in our school and greater community to connect with an art experience free of charge. Our concerts are a celebration of learning and community, and an opportunity for students to present their final product. It is the culmination of their hard work and hours of practice. The key area of Arts and Arts Access were addressed by hosting the concerts in Bemidji at a larger venue with free admission.
