School Arts Project
ACHF Arts Education
100% of 1st grade students will participate in daily 1 hour sessions with the artist during the 5 day residency, learning creative movement and expression. 100% of 1st grade students will create a written journal that will record in words and pictures the skills they are learning. 100% of 1st grade students will perform in a clowning skit for an audience of Kindergarten students and parents/grandparents. The outcomes listed above will be evaluated by teacher and artist observations of the students. Students will self-assess their progress by communicating both orally and in written form the new skills they are learning. The final evaluation of the project will be the Friday performance for an audience. The positive reaction of the audience to the skits will be a measure of the students successfully learning the target skills of creative movement and expression.
