Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project high school English students will show an emotional reaction to photography and creating art with the camera, students will gain skills and knowledge in photography and share their work with the public. Evaluation will occur though a written or verbal participant, artist and teacher questionnaire, audience numbers for the display and their emotional reaction to participating in the residency.

Measurable Outcome(s)

100% of students surveyed indicated they learned more about being photographers. All students also indicated they enjoyed the artist in their classroom and felt the experience was a positive one. Our goals were met with students learning more about photography and taking meaningful photos. Students also indicated that the photography residency would help them in the future. Students also created a display of their photographs in the school for the public to see.
