Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project: We will heighten the awareness of students at Long Prairie Grey Eagle High School about Luiz Rodriguez and his poetry, as well as the role poets can play in improving social conditions in their community. We will partner with at least two school districts to bring at least 125 middle school and/or high school students to Central Lakes College on March 29th to hear and meet Luis Rodriguez. We will adequately serve over 400 audience members attending the poetry reading by Luis Rodriguez at Central Lakes College , by providing them quality seating in Chalberg Theater or in being able to witness the live stream of his poetry reading in a comfortable lecture hall adjacent to the theater. All attendees are ensured access to meeting. We will measure our goals by the following: We will survey Long Prairie Grey Eagle students to assess their knowledge of Mr. Rodriguez's life, poetry, and impact on society with 5 simple questions. We will count and track the number of students who attend as part of a group from a middle or high school from the region. We will count the number of people attending the reading, meet and greet and workshop, and note what worked and didn't work about providing live stream optional seating, so we can use this to even better improve our audience's experience in the future.
