Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program Lake of the Woods School students will become more aware of how theatrical productions can voice social concerns and gain a lasting impression about musicals. As a result of this program Lake of the Woods School students will recognize and appreciate the skill of artists from around the world. As a result of this program the general public will be the beneficiary of a more well-rounded student body that will make positive differences in our interconnected world. We will gather feedback from our students in a variety of forms: a survey, journal entries, classroom discussions, and a presentation to the school board.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I am certain this trip had a powerful impact on the students rippling beyond to the community and the future. The comments we heard and read are why we teach. Representatives spoke to the school board and their enthusiasm was clearly evident. I have included a sampling of their responses to their favorite part. They DID discuss about how it relates socially and certainly appreciated the skill of the various artists. The valedictorian even sang part of a song from Wicked in her graduation speech.
