Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will evaluate Eclectic Edge Ensemble's Educational Outreach Program successes if we are able to send nine teaching artists and four assistant teachers into four different residency programs at Anoka Middle School, Northwestern University, Open EEE Master Classes with guest choreographers at The Cowles Center for Dance and a EEE student master class for ages 12-18 taught before EEE's 15th Anniversary Concert at The Lab Theater. Over the four different programs we hope to reach over 100 students ranging in age from twelve through adult with over 80 hours of programming. The Eclectic Edge Ensemble Educational Outreach Program evaluation tools will include student journal entries from both students in the Northwestern University and Anoka Middle School of the Arts that will bring up, strengths and weaknesses they felt and overall experiences. Teaching Artists, directors and project leads will fill out questionnaires; including questions on outcome of project goals, what activities were completed to accomplish the intended outcome? Were there any unanticipated results, either positive or negative? Etc. Site visits will be made by the EEE Project Leaders where they will observe classes, teaching artists and student involvement as well as informal discussions following the final production or activity conducted by the teaching artists to the students and audience members.
