Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program 6th grade students at Bemidji Middle School will write with greater confidence in their creative writing. A majority of participating students will self-report through an anonymous on line survey using SurveyMonkey that they feel satisfied with the story generator method, feel increased confidence in their writing skills, and feel satisfaction with their creative writing. Students will be able to offer suggestions for future story generations. Community members will answer a short anonymous survey asking about their experience at the open house.
