Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, Schoolcraft students will gain experience preparing pieces for exhibition and performing in a concert hall to a large audience. As a result of this program, the public will be invited to attend a concert that demonstrates student achievement in the performing arts and foreign language, performed by very young students all the way through adolescence. This showcases the local student talent in Bemidji, as well as the talent and diligence of our arts instructors. Each concert will be recorded and it will be viewed by each class. The teacher and class will 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. The students will receive a grade for their work in class, and we will send out a google form survey asking families to evaluate the concert.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had another year of great concerts at a great venue for our Schoolcraft community. There was a survey available to all audience members at our spring concert. There was a paper copy or it could have been accessed via QR Reader.
