Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Maplewood youth and their adults will learn to make puppets, use visual art to express viewpoints about the world, and explore fundamental performance skills of voice, physical and facial expression. Our primary outcome for each session is for 75% of participants to indicate that they acquired or grew the identified skill for each session. We will be working with the Wilder foundation to do evaluation for this series and will utilize multiple methods to collect the desired data. We will measure success through an embedded evaluation activity; at the end of each session, teaching artists will lead participants to measure their understanding of the skill on a chalkboard sized graph. The X-axis will include the following points: ônot at all,ö ôa little,ö ôsome,ö ôquite a bit,ö ôvery much.ö We will ask participants to chart themselves on the graph ű both what they knew about the skill before the session and now, what they know afterward. Success will be 75% of respondents indicating that the workshop moved them at least one point on the five point scale.
