University Musical Society and its educational partners Ann Arbor Public Schools and Washtenaw Intermediate School District share their "TalkOut" program:
TalkOut: Hearing What Youth Say About Live Performance
Last year during the Kennedy Center Annual Meeting, MI 1997 (University Musical Society, Ann Arbor Public Schools, Washtenaw Intermediate School District), with the guidance of Eric Booth, designed an experiment that would allow the team to better capture the impact of its School Day Performances on youth, while also making connections to the Common Core standards. TalkOut was born: a live, post-performance chat format that invites students to the stage to talk about and reflect upon their experience immediately following the show. UMS Director of Education & Community Engagement Jim Leija will talk about the ins and outs of launching this project, and share some of the students’ responses.
