This report is the second in a series of reports from a three-year evaluation study of the Neighborhood Bridges (Bridges) program of the Children’s Theatre Company (CTC) in Minnesota. CTC
contracted with the University of Minnesota’s Center for Applied Research and Educational
Improvement to evaluate Bridges as part of a grant CTC received from the Arts in
Education Model Development and Dissemination Program of the U.S. Department of
Education. The purpose of this report is to summarize additional data gathered since the initial report and present recommendations for program improvement based on a synthesis of all the data collected to date. The next report in the series will include data from the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA-II) reading test that students took in spring 2006.
Submitted to The Children’s Theatre Company By Debra Ingram. As part of the study, CAREI is working collaboratively with Dr. Virginia McFerran of the Perpich Center for Arts Education, CTC staff, and Neighborhood Bridges classroom teachers and teaching artists to develop tools to assess student learning in theatre.
