Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

234 students at Kelliher Public Schools will acquire knowledge about Sweden and what is required to become a classical musician and comedian from Maestro Martenssen by having the opportunity to hear him perform and engage in conversation with him during the school residency on Monday, November 24, 2014.Each room will collectively select one word or phrase that best describes what they learned from this experience. From these one-word or one-phrase descriptors, a Wordle will be created that can be distributed to each classroom showing the range of arts and cultural learning that was achieved.

Measurable Outcome(s)

A ôWordleö was created from conversations with the students who attended Martenssen's presentation. Maestro Magnus Martenssen's humor and unique playing and teaching style engaged student learning. Students showed an increase in knowledge of composers/pianists from Bach to Gershwin, and an increased understanding of Scandinavia.
