ACHF Arts Education
High School for Recording Arts students will develop proficiency in learning instruments; Walker West students will develop proficiency in the recording arts. Both will increase their music theory knowledge. Individuals will be given pre and post assessments in their chosen area of development. There will also be at least three formative assessments. All will be given pre and post assessments in music theory. 2: High School for Recording Arts and Walker West will develop a working relationship that will last well beyond this project, resulting in further collaboration. We will track further collaborations.
HSRA and MacPhail offer different arts experiences. Students demonstrated increases their knowledge of theory and musical/technological skill levels. Several methods were used. Teaching artists evaluated students' initial knowledge of theory and initial skill level in their chosen area. Students also evaluated themselves using a scale of one through five. Intermediate and final assessments were also made. A student focus group was also conducted by Project Manager Tony Simmons, using both survey results and feedback utilizing a Critical Friends protocol. 2: HSRA and MacPhail have developed a good working relationship and plan to continue to collaborate. In fact, we are continuing to work with JD Steele. To assess what barriers existed to students having this type of artistic learning experience and to what extent their opportunities have been increased through this project, we conducted participant surveys and focus groups. To assess an overall increased engagement in school, we performed credit counts comparing the number earned during the semester they became involved in the project with the previous semester.
