This report is the first 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. The study is funded through a grant to CTC 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 results from surveys completed by teaching artists and classroom teachers who participated in Bridges during the 2005-2006 school year and make preliminary recommendations for how the program could be improved. A subsequent report will summarize data collected through interviews with classroom teachers and teaching artists and include final recommendations based on a synthesis of the survey and interview data.
