Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project students will be inspired to create visual journals that will be used to express themselves and also to journal across the curriculum. Evaluation will occur through a questionnaire for students and the teacher, There will be follow up contact with the artist, personal observations will also be made and numbers of participants and audience will be determined.

Measurable Outcome(s)

100% of students interviewed felt they had learned a new art form from the artist. The students in all classes created visual journals. Students stated, "She helped us with the simple things all the way through the tough things." "Heidi understands our attitudes. She was adaptive!" "Bookmaking was fun... it was a different art form." Students were proud of their work... some stated they would use the journals to write in, others thought theirs were a work of art to be looked at!
