Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goal of The MixTape project is to engage teen boys in the residential juvenile justice program at Woodland Hills in self reflection through music. By reading other artist's lyrics and stories, students will analyze how Hip Hop artists use music as a means to share their lived experiences with the world. Students will then have the opportunity to write and record a track to share their own stories with the rest of the group and a broader audience through KUMD. Not only will students analyze music as a vehicle for self expression, they will be exposed to the recording and production process, using Logic software to record and mix their own track. Literacy will be measured when student has READ, SELECTED artist lyric, and PRESENTED on the theme/subject. Writing will be measured when student SUBMITS 3+ verses, with HIGHLIGHTS of 5 new vocabulary words. Collaboration will be measured when student PARTICIPATES in crafting a "Single" that FEATURES TWO OR MORE youths. Skill will be measured when student successfully SETS UP equipment properly and is able to RECORD themselves. *An assessment form including all categories/goals will be used by the facilitator to track each student's progress in the program. Students will complete pre and post surveys that measure their growth, interest and knowledge of music recording.
