Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of the writer in residence coming to our school, the primary elementary students will be able to write a personal narrative using the wordless book format. The evaluation will occur by using student questionnaires and a meeting with the artist in residence when the project is over.

Measurable Outcome(s)

What happens in a classroom when an artist comes in once a day for a week and teaches art, their area of expertise, is this, everyone wins! The kids who don't think they like art and whose minds are changed as a result of the week, the teachers who think art only looks a certain way win, because they begin to understand that art is as much about the process as it is the individual's project. When kids go home and tell their parent, I have to do more art because this is so cool! Families win too!
