Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Documentation and evaluation demonstrates that 95% of students create a quality art product that is informed by environmental and cultural knowledge and participate in active reflection on their art work. 90% of classroom teachers report that they have strengthened their artistic skills and expanded environmental science instructional strategies. Qualitative assessment tools are used by the professional evaluator to measure student learning in art/science through informal observations and conversations with students as they are creating art. The evaluator also conducts focus groups inviting teachers and artists to reflect on the impact of the project on student learning.
