Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Students demonstrate comprehension of oral stories - character, plot, setting, and theme. 2. Students express original opinions in class discussion, and value different opinions. 3. Students demonstrate understanding of oral transmission by retelling story scenes in creative drama groups. 4. Students give other groups germane and helpful feedback on their scenes in class. 5. Students translate oral story comprehension and telling skills onto the page in written work. 6. We get a community performance audience of at least 50. 1. Artist and teacher confer daily on class demonstrations of comprehension, story elements, and original ideas/listening courtesy in discussions. Artist adjusts lesson plans in response to this daily evaluation. 2. Short writing prompts in days 1-4 allow students to demonstrate grasp of concepts: character, plot, setting, and theme. 3. Daily videotaping of all class's scenes; allowing students to watch their own group's scenes for self-feedback and improvement. 4. Count audience at performance. 5. Student end-of-residency survey on their own improvement.
